Sherwood is a locality in the Australian state of South Australia located about 222 kilometres (138 mi) south-east of the state capital of Adelaide and about 30 kilometres (19 mi) north-west of the municipal seat of Bordertown.
Boundaries for the locality were created in March 2000 for the “long established name.”
Sherwood is served by Emu Flat Road which passes through the locality from the Ngarkat Highway in the east where the highway forms the locality’s eastern boundary to Keith in the west where the road terminates in the Keith town centre.
The principal land use in the locality is primary production. A parcel of land at its eastern boundary has protected area status as the Hardings Springs Conservation Reserve.
Sherwood is located within the federal division of Barker, the state electoral district of MacKillop and the local government area of the Tatiara District Council.
