B.M.R.(1959) approved file 1635/56 vol2 p337 & 346; The Cronin hills are not more than 31m high. They are named after Mr Dan Cronin, a member of Edward Kidsons magnetic survey expedition of 1914 - The expedition carried out magnetic observations along the Canning Stock Route. The group of hills are interspersed between sand ridges to the east of Lake Disappointment.
