Cue, known as “Queen of the Murchison” because of its importance in the gold production of the area, is a fascinating starting point to explore the Murchison and Goldfields regions of Western Australia.

The town is a peaceful place to stay. Within a day’s drive north of Perth, Cue is often the first overnight stop for campers and caravaners starting their outback adventure. With cleanliness and safety being key qualities of a proud township, Cue is a destination where you can unwind and truly enjoy the Australian outback experience.

The most popular time to visit Cue is May to October when the weather is mildest and the winter rains turn the sweeping red landscape into a lively palette of wildflowers. It is a popular destination for seniors heading north and escaping the chills of winter as the average maximum temperature in July (the coldest month) is around 18.5 °C. If you are visiting in summer, be prepared for the heat with January averaging maximum temperatures of 37.8 °C.

Cue has tourism attractions ranging from 19th century buildings to 10,000 year old Aboriginal rock art. Accommodation choices include historic hotels, station stays and camping grounds.

Take some time-out in this quiet heritage town and you are sure to enjoy the balance of being surrounded by yesteryear’s charm and today’s outback experience.
