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.

Finding Unlikely Friends

This is the view up to our Lookout. It's a great hike -- about half an hour up, 20 minutes down. Assuming you come down the trail. If you follow Brent's gang, you'll come scrambling down the mountain's face, making your own trail. Exploring.

The view from the top is splendid. On a clear day, if you know where to look, you can spot the Dorset Fire Tower. And see all of Bondi Village spread out below.

And, after a short break to get organized for the scramble down, you can find all sorts of interesting things. Ice, like frozen waterfalls over rock. Interesting lichens. The narrow trails left by deer.

And you might -- as these guests did -- find yourself face to face with a porcupine. He was nestled in a small cave under the rocks. 30,000 quills (give or take a few) and a fairly unperturbed outlook on life means that the porcupine is pretty laid back. Our guests stared at him. He stared back at them. And they kept climbing down the hill.
