Woodstock is a bounded semi-rural locality in Victoria, Australia located just north of Melbourne's outer suburbs. Its local government area is the City of Whittlesea. At the 2016 census, Woodstock had a population of 150.
Woodstock Post Office opened on 9 January 1858 and closed in 1971. To the west Woodstock West Post office opened in 1877 and continued operating until 1959. In September 1876 a small timber Catholic church, known as the church of St. Patrick, was erected for local worshippers.
Deputations were made to the Victorian government during the 1890s to bring a railway line through the area. It was decided that the Sydney-Melbourne rail corridor would run to the west, parallel with the Hume Highway, and so the closest railway station is at Donnybrook approximately 8 km away.
