Woolooware is derived from an Aboriginal word wooloowa, meaning a muddy track. That was an appropriate description for the original Woolooware Road that ran from Port Hacking, along Burraneer Point to the Kingsway. Surveyor Robert Dixon altered the name, when he created the suburb of Woolooware in 1927.

It was originally a thickly forested area, with mangrove swamps around Woolooware Bay. Those were later reclaimed to create parks and playing fields including Endeavour Field, Woolooware Golf Course and Cronulla Golf Course.

The area was subdivided after the railway line from Sutherland to Cronulla was opened in 1939. The first public school opened in 1951 and the post office opened in October 1954.
