The City of Burnet is nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country surrounded by rolling hills, lakes, beautiful geological formations and historical sites.

Burnet, the county seat of Burnet County, is one mile west of the divide between the Brazos and Colorado river watersheds near the center of the county, forty-eight miles northwest of Austin. The town of Burnet grew up around Fort Croghan in the mid 1800’s. The County of Burnet was formed in December of 1851 and the City of Burnet (then called Hamilton) was named as the county seat. The name was changed to Burnet in 1858 in honor of┬áDavid G. Burnet, first provisional governor of the Republic of Texas. Among the many attractions in the Burnet area are the Highland Lakes, Longhorn Cavern and State Park, the Historic Burnet Square, the Highland Lakes Air Museum, Fort Croghan Museum and Grounds, the Vanishing Texas River Cruise, Hamilton Creek Park, the Texas Wine Trail, Galloway Hammond Recreation Center and Delaware Springs Golf Course.

The Historic Square features buildings from as early as the 1880’s and offers a variety of unique shops and eateries. Drive in or take the Hill Country Flyer from Cedar Park. Watch the Burnet Gunfighter’s fight it out at Old West Town on Saturday and Sunday (on the same schedule as the train).
