The first European to visit the area, in 1864, was the explorer Charles Cooke Hunt, who charted a large granite hill in the area by its Indigenous Australian name of Qualyin Hill. The meaning of the name is unknown.
The townsite was selected in 1912 due to its position near Coaring Spring and the townsite was gazetted in 1913, the same year the railway was opened. The station was initially named as Koarin but later renamed as Kwolyin.
