This town in the South West region of Western Australia is located 212 km south of Perth and off the highway midway between Bunbury and Busselton.
Frederick Ludlow discovered the Capel River in 1834, but it remained without a name until the Busselton family came to the area. Soon after, the family was followed by several settlers. It was named after Capel Carter Brockman, daughter of John Bussell.
Capel, located on the Capel River, was formerly a farming area, dealing mainly in agricultural products such as dairy and beef. Up to this day, agriculture remains an important part of the area’s economy. Capel is known for hobby farms, which function more as recreational lands or country homes more than profitable working farms. This attracts people who are looking for a relaxed lifestyle or those who prefer non-urban lifestyles like beach or nature living.
Locals are pursuing different novel agricultural activities including viticulture (grape growing), raising of alpaca, aquaculture (or aquafarming) and blue gum production.
Aside from agricultural, mineral sands mining and tourism are also important parts of Capel’s economy.
