Bute is a town in the Mid North of South Australia, approximately 40 kilometres east of Wallaroo and 24 kilometres west of Snowtown. It was proclaimed as a town in 1884[2] and named after the Isle of Bute, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland.[4] Attractions to the town include the nearby Bute tannery,[2] Bute Hobbies Bromeliad Display Gardens and the Bute Hotel[5] The town is surrounded by agricultural and pastoral land.

Railways

Bute is situated on the disused rail line between Wallaroo and Brinkworth. This line was originally narrow gauge (1067mm) but was converted to broad gauge (1600mm) in 1927.[6] From the late 1990s until 2009 a tourist train traversed the line from Wallaroo to Bute.[7]
