This townsite, located between Three Springs and Mingenew and gazetted in 1904, takes its name from the Aboriginal name of nearby springs, Arrino Well. These springs were recorded as early as 1859, and have been spelt variously as Arranoo, Arronoo and Arrino. An early settler, Mr N W Cooke had a property named “Arrino” here in 1876. The meaning of the Aboriginal word is not known, but one source states it means “many granite hills”.
