Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Come for the Scrum, Stay for the Moose

There's an old saw that Soccer is a gentleman's game, played by gentlemen. Rugby is a ruffian's game, played by gentlemen, and hockey is a ruffian's game played by ruffians. (But, being Canadian, they would be polite ruffians, and drink good Canadian beer)

For Rugby fans, however, it doesn't get much better than May 30, 2009, when Wales rolls into Toronto for an international match at York Stadium.

Which would indicate that some folks from Wales will be rolling into Toronto as well, showing their colours (and no doubt heading off to the Ferret and Firkin Pub to down a few with the Toronto Dragons Club)

Some of them may want to see more of Canada than the inside of a stadium, and we mention here that May is one of the best months for Moose Spotting in Algonquin Provincial Park. These giants are moving out of the winter woods and gathering near the roads where they can replenish lost salts, and browse in the wetlands.

If you're wondering where to go after the match, might we suggest you come for a few days to visit us in North Muskoka -- ten minutes from the park, with plenty of wildlife of our own.

And moose-watching, well, it is definitely a gentleman's game. Played by gentlemoose.
