History[edit]

The Woodhill State School was originally established in 1873. Initially it was called Townsvale State School but was renamed Veresdale in 1874, and then in 1899 became Woodhill.[3]

Formerly in the Shire of Beaudesert, Woodhill became part of Logan City following the local government amalgamations in March 2008.
