Carrabin is a small town located about 43 kilometres (27 mi) east-north-east of Merredin, on the railway line between Merredin and Southern Cross in Western Australia.
The town was gazetted in 1912, and took its name from the already existing railway siding located adjacent to the townsite. It is an Aboriginal name of unknown meaning.
In 1932 the Wheat Pool of Western Australia announced that the town would have two grain elevators, each fitted with an engine, installed at the railway siding.
It also is the site of an agricultural research station.
