Sandringham is a suburb in southern Sydney and is located 18 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district. Sandringham is in the local government area of the City of Rockdale.

Sandringham is bounded generally by Sandringham Street in the north, Botany Bay in the east and south and Waldron Street and the suburb of Sans Souci in the west.

Sandringham, originally known as Strippers Point in the 1830s, from the local occupation of tree-felling and bark-stripping, is a quiet residential suburb on the western shore of Botany Bay, at the mouth of the Georges River. The Georges River Sailing Club sits on the foreshore.

Development of the area dates originally from the late 1800s, although little growth occurred until the 1920s. Significant development occurred in the post-war years.
