Woodbridge, Western Australia

Woodbridge is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Swan local government area. Formerly part of Midland and previously informally named West Midland, its name, which was officially gazetted on 1 March 2001, is from Governor James Stirling's original 1829 land grant which he named after his wife's family property near Guildford in England.[2]

On 4 October 2004, Transperth renamed the West Midland railway station to Woodbridge station.[3] The station is part of the Midland railway line which serves the eastern suburbs as a rapid transit railway.

Woodbridge House,[4] a National Trust property on the edge of the Swan River, is now a museum that is open to the public. It was previously owned by Charles Harper (politician).

Governor Stirling Senior High School is within the locality.
