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.

Earth Day

We think every day should be Earth Day. I don't know about you, but I rarely wake up on a different planet... Nor would I want to. I'm staggered every day by the beauty of this one.

There's a lot of hue and cry about the new Pesticide ban for lawns. We think that's great. It's time to embrace your inner weed...

After all, this campaign of terror waged against the dandelion, well, all that does is remove the food source for the American goldfinch. They arrive every year, in great swirling flocks of colour, and brighten up the feeders and the lawns. We'd rather have the diversity of birdlife than a lawn that looks like a carpet of astro-turf.

Ever since we discovered that you could now buy dandelion greens in the supermarket, we realized we were in possession of a cash crop!

Disposing of unwanted items safely can be a huge issue for people, however. Where to take them? How to store them until disposal? Do What You Can is a handy site that will direct you to the collection sites near you, so you can help out the Earth. Not just today. Every day.
