Rawlinna is a remote locality and railway siding on the Trans-Australian Railway in Western Australia. It is also the site of a small lime mine, in which the lime is extracted from the limestone that is prevalent in the area. The lime is mostly used in the gold production process at Kalgoorlie.
During the time of the Trans-Australian Railway requiring personnel at railway stations the community at Rawlinna supported a school.
