The highway passes through Capella from south to north as Capella's main street (also known as Peak Downs Street). Capella is served by the Capella railway station on a railway line from Emerald to Blair Athol; it is a branch line of the Central Western railway line. The branch line also runs from north to south and is immediately adjacent and to the west of the highway.Capella Creek flows from east to west across the northern part of the locality to the immediate north of the town. Capella Creek is a tributary of the Nogoa River, which in turn is a tributary of the Fitzroy River which enters the Coral Sea.HistoryCapella was founded in the late 1860s by graziers influenced by the good reports of Ludwig Leichhardt. It takes its name from Capella Creek, which was in turn named after the star Capella probably by surveyor Charles Frederick Gregory.
