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.

The Mergansers Return

April always has at least one snowstorm. Gloria Woodside sent us this photo of the mergansers, hunkered down against the bad weather as they swam past her cottage.

They're doing better now. Dave was in shirtsleeves while working on some dock repairs, and the lake ice has come 'undone' from the shores, opening up lots of water for the ducks, and giving the sun lots of places to sparkle.

Spring is here! This is the absolutely best time to see moose in Algonquin Park, and to walk in the woods before any flies have appeared. Late April and early May are hikers' and birdwatchers' prime time!

And the Mergansers like it too!
