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.

Boys and their Toys

The potato cannon makes a regular appearance at the Wiener Roast. With constant fine tuning, and the careful application of the propellant, the lads can lob a potato almost to the Port Cunnington Road.

Not to be outdone, Jean-Luc arrived with his own, slightly more green, version.  A huge section of surgical tubing, joined at the centre with a strip of old blue-jean denim, this catapult was a thing of rare beauty.  Powered by human muscle, this device zinged the 'payload' almost as far as the propane powered potato cannon itself.

It dazzled.  It was a hoot. It was, as the kids say, wicked.
