Carrabin is a small town located about 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

It serves as a stop on the Prospector rural train service.

The Carrabin Roadhouse is a motel-petrol station and its location is exactly half way between Perth and Kalgoorlie.
