Grindelwald is a small town just north of Launceston, Tasmania developed in the style of a Swiss village by Roelf Vos, a Dutch immigrant to Tasmania, after he sold his "Roelf Vos" supermarket chain to Woolworths. It was built around an artificial lake, on the edge of which sits the 40 hectare Tamar Valley Resort, which shares the Swiss architectural style. The suburb was begun in 1980, and the resort opened in 1989
Grindelwald is the final stop of the annual TasGas cycling challenge.
In November 2013, it was announced that the town would be the site of a 103 million dollar eco-tourism project by developer Mike Dean.
