Carrabin

Carrabin is a small stop on the Great Eastern Highway between the major towns of Merredin and Southern Cross. Merredin is some 42 kilometres to the west of here. The railway line to Southern Cross came through here in the 1890's at which time a railway siding and station were constructed and commissioned. The town of Carrabin wasn't established until 1912, around about the same time as nearby Westonia. The name Carrabin is of Aboriginal origin
