In 1888, a town known as Booran was surveyed following the construction of the South Coast railway line. The name Woodridge is derived from an informal name given to a property owned by Octavius Stubbs. When the Railway Department opened a platform to the public in early 1917 they selected Woodridge for the station name and later that year the name was recognised by the post office. Like a number of other Logan City suburbs Woodridge was once part of the Shire of Tingalpa.
In the 2011 census, Woodridge recorded a population of 12,787 people, 50.5% female and 49.5% male. The median age of the Woodridge population was 30 years, 7 years below the Australian median. 54% of people living in Woodridge were born in Australia. The other top responses for country of birth were New Zealand 9.1%, England 2.6%, Samoa 2.1%, Burma 1.6%, India 1.5%. 62.8% of people spoke only English at home; the next most common languages were 4.3% Samoan, 1.7% Arabic, 1.2% Hindi, 1.1% Karen, 1.1% Tongan.
