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.

Fireworks and Community Spirit

There's lots going on in Dorset these days.  Not just Robinson's, the greatest general store  east of the Atlantic; nor the Museum with the scale model of the fascinating Gilmour Tramway; not the ice cream from Northern D'Lites on the dock; or the S.S. Bigwin, just waiting for the new boiler so she can steam the lake.  Not the Lookout Tower, with one of the district's best views.

There's something you don't quite see -- and that is the community spirit behind this little community.  You can see the results: the new flower boxes, new dock, new gardens and new gazebo. Soon you'll see a new childrens' playground too.

And on Saturday, we got to see one of the best firework displays anywhere.  This is put on by the volunteers of the Fire Dept. and the Community Group.

This should be on everyone's list who is up here for July 1st weekend.

Just like Firefest at Dwight, on the long weekend in August, should be on the list.

It is the great volunteers and the keen community spirit that make these places hum.
