Central Texas & Hill Country Land For Sale

Central Texas is a large geographical region within the state of Texas. The core of central Texas includes the cities of Austin, Round Rock, and Temple. More broadly, Central Texas incorporates some 38 counties and part of Texas Hill Country to the west.

What is Texas Hill Country?

Texas Hill Country is a hilly, transitional area between Texas' southeastern lowlands, and the plains of the Edwards Plateau in the north and west.

The bulk of Texas Hill Country lies within the area outlined by Junction, Del Rio, San Antonio, and Austin.

The Highest Point in Texas Hill Country

The highest point in Texas Hill Country is an unnamed high point located in Kimble County. The peak is roughly 2,460 feet high, rising gradually from the surrounding land. The highpoint is 30 minutes northwest of the county seat of Junction, following the Interstate 10 west and then Farm Road 1674 north. The peak is also roughly 70 miles west of Austin, Texas. 

Is Austin in Texas Hill Country?

The city of Austin lies at the eastern edge of Texas Hill Country. The Austin Metro is considered a major urban area within Texas Hill Country. 

Things to do in Central Texas and the Hill Country

  • Stargazing - Take a drive where the lights are low
  • BBQs and Live Music - There are many local venues for watching musicians and grabbing a bite to eat

Texas Hill Country - Water Info

The Texas Hill Country is known for its relatively abundant freshwater and green hills. Much of this water comes from underground aquifers which require careful management

Furthermore, because of the geological makeup of the Hill Country region, the groundwater drawn here tends to be some of the hardest in the country. You can learn more about hard water in the Texas Hill Country here

Central Texas and Hill Country Farms, Land & Ranches For Sale

Live water river on a ranch in central Texas Hill Country

Given the transitional nature of the area, land types and uses are varied, presenting a range of opportunities.

Recreational opportunities abound, from fishing, rafting, and swimming, to simple sightseeing to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and wildlife.

Plains to the north and south support large scale ranching operations, while more niche farming flourishes throughout, including orchards, flowers, and herbs.

The proximity to major urban centers, tourism, and abundance of live water rivers make this area an especially exciting prospect.
