Shire of Cue promotional video on YouTube.

The town of Cue in Western Australia is known as the ‘Queen of the Murchison’. Situated right in the centre of the region, an hour's drive north from Mount Magnet, the town has many grand heritage buildings dating back to the gold rush of the late 1890s, some of which are still being used for their original purpose.
Be sure to check out the Cue Hotel, the government buildings, post office, court house, police station and Bell's Emporium.




Visit the region between July and September and you’ll also be treated to a beautiful display of Western Australian wildflowers
