Capella is a small town in Central Highlands, Queensland midway between Emerald and Clermont on the Gregory Highway. At the 2006 census, the town had a population of 796.

It was founded in the late 1860s by graziers influenced by the good reports of Ludwig Leichhardt.

Today, it is a service town catering to the large coal-mining interests in the area as well as pastoralists.

Sport is a very big part of the town, especially Rugby League and Union. The Capella Cattledogs rugby union team made it to the grand final in 2007 against the Clermont Bushpigs.
