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.

Discover the amazing murals throughout Bute, including the stunning large-scale mural on the town's silo. Created by artists Scott Nagy & Krimsone, this colourful artwork represents women in country areas, local orchids in flower, birdlife including a Rainbow Bee-eater and Blue Wren, and the Bute Railway Station.  

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 1884 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.

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
