Inala is believed to have been at the intersection of a number of Aboriginal tribal territories prior to white settlement. First known as Boylands Pocket when Europeans settled the region in the 19th century, the area was initially used for sheep grazing and then for tobacco growing.

The suburb was established following a meeting in May 1946. Originally known as Serviceton, it was renamed Inala in 1953.
