The Shire of Cue is 120kms south of Meekatharra and 80kms north of Mt Magnet, right in the middle of the beautiful outback. Its not a flat, arid landscape as people might imagine. The dark red backdrop is scattered with striking wildflowers, native animals, huge breakaways and bright white salt lakes. As you make your way into town you are struck by the heritage of the gold rush town lying in every building along the main street. If you are planning on including Cue in your outback adventure, its about 650km north-east of Perth and just over 400km from Geraldton. The best time for visiting Cue is between April and September before the hot desert weather sets in.
