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.

Stewarding the fish

The Andrew Daniels Fish Stewardship Program is dedicated to improving the habitat of the lake, regenerating shorelines and restoring creeks to help ensure that the Lake of Bays offers the very finest living conditions for our fish -- and along with that, for our people, since the environment is so inter-connected.

Andy and Jacquie are among the dedicated volunteers that work with this foundation.  They are doing great work.  Down at Rabbits Bay, near Dorset, last year they restored a creek bed that was being overrun by road construction, and were thrilled to watch the spawining trout come back.

Yesterday, at Port Cunnington Lodge, they held a Brunch fundraiser. Ken and Mary Joan enjoyed the meal, and scooped up a painting at the Silent Auction too!

Not this painting... mind you... this is a huge mural that is part of the Group of Seven mural tour that encompasses Huntsville, Dwight, Dorset and Baysville.  It's on the rec barn at Port Cunnington Lodge, who graciously hosted a fabulous brunch, and it's the most fitting image for a foundation that is working to restore stream beds!

  1. Good for all of you. I gave up fighting for my wee lake. Too many citiots, and locals who abuse water, land, air. Treating the lake like a private Nascar track.
