  1. I’ve never heard of the town Cue, but you’ve made a small place sound like it would be a great place to visit. I love the way you described it, and your words: “the decay and ghostliness of the semi-abandoned town, and the way it felt as if time had stood still there ever since the 1930′s,” had me in one!

    • Oh yes, it really is an atmospheric town and a great place to visit if you’re ever in the Murchison Region. Thanks for commenting, Johanna.

  2. Hi! We will be going to Cue next week for a couple of days. I am from the Philippines and visiting my brother and sis in law here in Mandurah. My brother is working nearby Cue and he loves me to taste and feel the real WA outback life. I am excited to check the place out and after reading this article, I am more excited. 😉

  3. Thanks you this has been so helpful. AM off to Cue with my Mum in August. My grandfather was born near there in an now abandoned town of Naneen and she has always wanted to go and have a look at the area.

  4. Thanks, Bonny for information about Cue it’s very excite to hear about the history about thiis city. i will be in Cue 11 to 15 July doing a geology course with Bill O’Connor, but the hotel cost. is very expensive. is the camp in tents adequated in this date?

  5. Hi,
    Two of us will be heading out to Cue in a few weeks and we wish to camp out near Big Bell for a couple of days. We have a camper trailer and are fully self contained. Is free camping allowed there?
    Thanks for your help.
    Cheers
    Eric

    • I don’t think there’s a designated camping area at all, but as it’s fairly isolated out that way I doubt you’ll run into trouble with authorities if you set up camp there. If you want to know for sure though get in contact with the Cue tourism board. I believe Marc who writes the website wanowandthen.com camped at Big Bell quite recently.

  6. My grandmother and her husband owned the Rosscommon Hotel , she went there with a mine manager as child after both her parents died of on the goldfields in FNQ
    See had four children ,to Thomas Gill before he died and she ran the pub on her own , she remarried sometime later to Jobe Chesson an they had another three , Jack,Nora and my mum Margaret
    Jobe continued to work in the mine until he lost his sight in mine accident.

    Georgina Gill / Chesson was one hell of a Women

  7. Hello, I went to Cue years ago, maybe 2002? when I was living in Perth, WA … to enjoy the first QFest… a brilliant mix of music, comedy, art and food, all set in the magical emptiness of Cue.
    Where did it go? and why is it not still happening?
    Think Cue should adopt some of the strategies of Marfa, Texas (USA) and bloom in the desert!
    What do you think?
    thanks for your blog

  8. hi there cue seems I have a brother living there so i’m planning to visit soon as and reckon to do so before it gets too hot. good to hear those comments it will help heaps with my packing. seems I might be there when those wildflowers are blooming so looking forward to that very much it does sound quite marvellous. jenny

  9. I was born and raised in Mt Magnet and remember Cue very well. Our Primary School took part in Inter-town School Sports with Cue,Big Bell,Meekatharra,Sandstone & Yalgoo during the 1950s.Hockey,Football & Cricket teams from each town also competed. Cycle racing from Mt Magnet to Cue was another popular competition carried out over the 50 mile distance of red dirt roads and corrugations! All of those Murchison towns thrived whilst Gold production continued and the Railway line remained open. Cue has come wonderful historic architecture, so it would be lovely to see some of the older buildings in the main street restored to compliment them.
