Significant development did not occur until the 1980s, with Woodcroft being one of the newer suburbs in the City of Onkaparinga. Rapid growth took place during the 1980s and early 1990s, with the population more than doubling between 1991 and 1996 as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area.
