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.

Fire Tower

Built in 1922, this was one of the original Fire Towers from which rangers watched the forests for signs of fires.
Right now, there's a different kind of blaze in the forest, with the trees in autumn colours!
The original external ladder lead to the top, 82 feet high, and provided a panoramic view encompassing 310 sq. miles.
In 1967, a new Tower was constructed, complete with the current stairway.
There's a display in the Algonquin Park Visitor Centre, built around the original ranger station from the top of the Tower.
Imagine the view from up there -- which explains why tour buses start to back up along the road on the long Thanksgiving weekend waiting to get there. Go a little 'out of season', and you can have it all to yourself.
Stay with us at the same time, and enjoy our terrific 'out of season specials', such as . 6 people, 3 nights, $600.00
