Capella Pioneer Village Museum

At Capella Pioneer Village Museum, the Peak Downs homestead stands as Australia’s largest restored station homestead, anchoring the 16-building complex. Notably, the Gordon Downs station woolshed narrates the 1891 Great Shearers Strike and the audacious sabotage of a military train. The museum delves into the post-World War II Food for Britain initiative, spotlighting the expansive 200,000-hectare Queensland-British Food Corporation (QBFC). Visitors can explore a range of tractors and farming equipment spanning the 20th century. The museum also encapsulates the societal, domestic, and industrial tales of Capella and its district, encompassing wartime, rail, cinematic, and mining histories.
