Sandringham is a prosperous, multi-ethnic Auckland suburb in New Zealand.
The suburb is about 5 kilometres from central Auckland, just outside the powerhouses of Mt Eden and Kingsland and north of Mt Albert. Sandringham Road is the main thoroughfare, with Sandringham Village at the southern end and Eden Park at the northern end.
According to the 2018 New Zealand census, Sandringham had a population of 12,060 people and 3,981 households.
Sandringham Village is a few blocks south of the Outer Link bus stop along Sandringham Rd, and has a heavy South Asian presence in restaurants and small supermarkets, Halal butchers, and Bollywood movies. Mt Eden, Kingsland, and the Chinese-influenced Balmoral are all nearby.
There is a post office, pharmacy, medical and legal practises, a real estate agency, and a community centre in the village.
The village architecture is inspired by art deco, and much of it has survived, with the exception of the original village cinema. The nearby streets are lined with wooden villas and bungalows from the 1920s and 1930s.
Mount Albert Grammar School, Marist College, and St Peter’s College are the local secondary schools.
Edendale Primary School, Good Shepherd, Maungawhau Primary, and Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Nga Maungarongo, which teaches in Te Reo Maori, are among the local primary schools.
