Mount Warren was settled on Yugambeh land. The Queensland Daily Guardian newspaper reported that William Stanley Warren had planted a sugar crop in February 1865. Warren's estate was bounded by Milne Street, the Albert River, Windaroo Creek and Beaudesert Beenleigh Road. Warren also had Windaroo sugar plantation, planted cotton, Indian corn and told reporters he had grown wheat in 1865 also.
The region remained essentially rural until it was developed in 1974. It was named as a locality by Queensland Place Names Board on 1 May 1975. By 1976 the first residential subdivision around Rochester Drive had occurred.

During the early 1980's the estate was the site of several high profile lotteries run by the Brisbane based radio station 4BK (now B105 FM). Major prize in the "4BK Free Home" lottery was a house & land package in the estate. In one particular lottery, several houses were built along both sides of Schweitzer Street, with the winner given the choice of their preferred house. These houses were open to the public in the lead up to the draw, bringing a great deal to traffic and attention to the estate.
Windaroo State School opened on 28 January 1992.
