Betano was a traditional Timorese kingdom in former times.
HMAS Voyager became grounded at the bay at Betano after offloading the 2/4th Independent Company on 25 September 1942. The ship was blown up and scuttled after it could not be refloated. On 1 December 1942, HMAS Armidale was sunk by 13 Japanese aircraft, while attempting to evacuate Australian and Dutch soldiers and deliver a relief contingent.
