Woolshed is a suburb in the west of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. Woolshed's population is very low so for statistical purposes it was included in the larger area of Tallegalla, which recorded a population of 549 at the 2011 Australian Census.[1]

Unlike other places in Ipswich Woolshed lies within the Lockyer Creek catchment, not the Bremer River catchment. Most of the terrain is sloped as Woolshed occupies a section of the Little Liverpool Range. The area is undeveloped with few roads and little land clearing undertaken.

The Woolshed Creek Reserve was established in Woolshed as part of the Ipswich Enviroplan to preserve habitat suitable for koalas.[2]
