Sandergrove is a locality in the Australian state of South Australia about 9 km (5.5 mi) south of Strathalbyn. It was a junction on the Victor Harbor railway line, where the Milang railway line branched off. The railway was authorised in 1881 and closed in 1970.

The north-western end of the Nurragi Conservation Reserve, a private protected area which follows the alignment of the former Milang railway line as a rail trail, terminates at Sandergrove.

History

In 1863, the Strathalbyn Methodist circuit included a church at Sandergrove. It still existed in 1900, but it was not part of the circuit by 1963. The Sandergrove Primary School opened in 1923, but has since closed.
