Woodridge Prison was another prison that was used as a nearby alternate, usually when prisoners had to be transferred to or from for safety, after fires, and bomb scares.
Officers were transferred from Woodridge to Wentworth Detention Center after a riot, suggesting Woodridge was possibly one of the closest prisons to Wentworth, though its possible that it's supposed to be located in the suburb of Woodridge in Brisbane, Queensland.
Although women female inmates were transferred there for safety, Woodridge appeared to be a mens prison.
