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.

Water, Sand, Sun and Snowboots

Kids and Water. Kids and the Great Outdoors. It's unbeatable. Zack and Ali had a blast exploring along the shoreline, stomping on the ice, tossing icebergs off the dock (under Holly's watchful eyes) and getting down and dirty in the sand pile. We had to break out the beach toys for them!

Ali found ice by the dock that was so thick, and yet so clear, you could see right through it. She also found ice crystals in various decorative formations.

The kids learned about the noise the ice makes as it turns into crystals, how it sounds like wind chimes as it starts to move. They dammed up some of the rivulets, and watched how the water figured out a new way around.
And they got right down to the engineering in the sandpile, having begged Mom to let them shed their snowboots. On our southwest facing beach, it was hot in the sand, cold on the ice, and too much fun to choose between.
