"A slice of heaven"

We moved from the mainland in April 2016 and just by chance found Grindelwald, for us we fell in love with our house, with a beautiful view of Lake Louise and the Chapel. Lots of established trees, wildlife, big established blocks that are private, quiet and safe but still has a good feeling of community. Watch weddings ar the chapel at the weekend, walk around the lake picking Blackberries and feeding ducks. Lovely homes in traditional Swiss style, friendly locals...really is a skice of heaven.

"Escape to the country near the city"

We travelled Australia looking for a new home for our family and fell in love with Tasmania, the West Tamar and this suburb - especially Alpine Crescent. Grindelwald sits on a plateau overlooking the Tamar above world class wineries. The southern suburb below -Legana - is one of the fastest growing in Tasmania and has all the facilities. Most properties are acreages with character homes and expansive green lawns. The suburb has beautiful lakes, lots of open spaces, bush, wildlife, resort golf course, restaurant and some of the best views (sunrises & sunsets) you'll see anywhere. With it's own microclimate we're often well above the morning fogs in winter. An increasing number of young families are moving into the area as the original owners downsize for retirement. Best of all it's so well placed to explore the north-west villages with fantastic beaches and rolling green hills. Unbelievably affordable compared to the mainland!

"Beautiful vistas a short drive from the city"

Grindelwald is quite simply a wonderful place to live. Coming from mainland Australia we deliberately sought a quiet, beautiful suburb along the West Tamar that would suit our family of four. Grindelwald ticks all our boxes...it is extremely safe , has acreage blocks with room for animals, has a plethora of native wildlife and is close enough to Launceston to be a short drive to good schools and medical facilities.
The suburb lies on top of a hill and has breathtaking views along the Tamar Valley and also lies above the fog line. In Winter, the houses are bathed in morning sun and the views down to the rolling fog are just incredible. Equally amazing are the visible sunsets and sunrises, the sky seems to put on a spectacular show.
Neighbours are friendly and the presence of the Tamar Valley Resort provides a point of community and local interest.
Overall, the suburb is exceptionally beautiful with established trees, well kept gardens and interesting housing. The gardens display the colours of the four seasons beautifully and I have often been quite literally gob smacked by the scenery on local drives.

"Grindelwald - Located along the West Tamar Wine Route"

Grindelwald- located along the West Tamar wine route, close to shops, schools and doctors. Swiss style home in the older part of this estate (known as the Swiss Village). More modern properties in the newer areas of this lovely estate. Also a large very popular retirement village that has its own pool and recreation facilities. Review prepared by Joe Poupe
