Capella has modern information and communications technology infrastructure, with reliable  ADSL/Broadband access to town businesses and households, NBN satellite data processing solutions and mobile coverage.


The energy infrastructure for Capella and the surrounding area is supplied and maintained by Ergon Energy, which manages regional Queensland’s power supply network and offers retail electricity. Commercial bottled gas is supplied locally by Elgas and Origin Energy.

The Bowen Basin presents significant reserves of coal bed methane.


The Capella water supply is primarily from three specially-constructed off-stream storage dams drawing from Capella Creek at a maximum of 1.5 kilolitres per second providing, when full, a total storage of 1,100 megalitres. This is supported by a pipeline from the Bedford Weir on the Mackenzie River.
