Cue Heritage Discovery Centre

An intimate display from pre-settlement history to mining and modernity

You will be greeted by a giant map which shows the location of Cue in relation to Wajarri, Badimia and Yugunga Nya Country. You can also learn about the history of Thuwarri Thaa (Wilgie Mia), a Wajarri ochre mine which is Australia’s largest and deepest ochre mine, and one of the oldest mining sites in the world. The exhibition presents an assortment of stories, from the highly unusual ‘One Machine Band’ to the ‘What is that object?’. The Centre uses e-Hive, a web-based cataloguing system, to provide more information about each item, which can be accessed by scanning the QR codes in the Centre. Entry to the Cue Heritage Discovery Centre is through the Cue Visitor Centre.
