If you love colourful bromeliads, head to Bute where the local nursery (the only one of its kind in the state) has 1400 varieties. Gunner Bill’s Gallery in the restored police station, is a wonderful place to browse and includes a small museum. Bute is one of those towns that puts a natural break in your journey and the shady Railway Reserve is a great spot for a barbecue or picnic.

Bute was proclaimed in 1984 and takes its name from the Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. Today, Bute is a service centre for the surrounding agricultural industry and has a caravan park, hotel, post office, bank agency, golf course, IGA supermarket and sporting facilities.
