The Shire of Cue is a local government area in the Mid West region of Western Australia, about 420 kilometres (261 mi) east-northeast of the port city of Geraldton and about 650 kilometres (404 mi) north-northeast of the state capital, Perth. The Shire covers an area of 13,623 square kilometres (5,260 sq mi), and its seat of government is the town of Cue.


Cue initially existed as two entities - the Cue Road Board, gazetted in December 1895, and the Daydawn Municipal Council, gazetted in December 1894. In 1912, they merged to form the Cue-Daydawn Road Board, which was renamed Cue in 1930. On 1 July 1961, it became a Shire Council following changes to the Local Government Act.[2]


The shire is divided into three wards:

  • Cue Ward (5 councillors)
  • Daydawn Ward (1 councillor)
  • Tuckanarra Ward (1 councillor)
