Capella Pioneer Village Heritage Day

, 14 September 2019

See the tractors and machinery that built the region's broadacre farming industry in action at the Capella Pioneer Village Heritage Day. The new record for balancing a tractor on the big see-saw is seven seconds, can this be beaten?
Appreciate the engineering of the underground coal mining equipment that conveyed coal and personnel to the surface in the region's mining industry.
Marvel at the restored, all hardwood 'Peak Downs' station homestead plus 16 other buildings and their exhibits displaying over 5,000 items.
Enjoy big screen laughs while sitting in the renovated canvas sling seating of the Country Cinema - the only one of its kind in Central Queensland.
Cheer on the kids pedaling their little tractors flat out to keep the sled they are pulling moving along as it gets heavier.
There is craft, sheep shearing, blacksmithing, working flywheel engines and much more. All at the Capella Pioneer Village. Food and drinks available.
