Capella - Cities, Towns and Localities
Capella is another one of those mining towns in the Peak Downs region, servicing the giant Gregory Coal Mine which produces about 3 million tonnes of coal each year.

Capella was not built specifically for the mine, it has been established since 1883 and the town is home to rich fertile soils and a decent rainfall of nearly 600mm annually, enabling the production of sunflowers, wheat, legumes, chick peas and beef.

The main geographic feature of this area would have to be the Peak Ranges a number of volcanic plugs that make great photographic material.
