Woodside is a village in Victoria, Australia. At the 2011 census, Woodside and the surrounding area had a population of 488.[1]

Until its demolition in 2015, the tallest construction of the southern hemisphere — the aerial mast of the VLF Transmitter Woodside — was located near the village.[2] There is also a nearby beach of the same name.

A railway connected Woodside with the railhead of Port Albert from 22 June 1923 until 25 May 1953.[3]

An Australian oil and gas company, Woodside Petroleum, is named after this area.
