Arvo Tinni (sündinud 1935. aastal Keilas) on eesti päritolu Austraalia teedeinsener. 1950. aastal, vaevu 15-aastaselt ja umbkeelsena uuel kodumaal Austraalias maabunud Arvo töötas end tippu, aga jäi selle käigus eesti patrioodiks. Juba 1959 alustas Arvo Tinni karjääri teedeehituses ning töötab seal tänaseni. Ta on rajanud mitmeid unikaalseid objekte, kiirteid, sildu ja ehitisi. Üks keerulisemaid ja mastaapsemaid tema juhitud projekte oli Warringah kiirtee Põhja-Sydneys.
