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 Fishermen Home from the Sea

Brian, Mike and Dave took advantage of this spectacular autumn day. Hooking up the fishing boat, they headed into Algonquin to fish Lake Opeongo.

Fishing is serious business. Requires a lot of attention to detail, and concentration. David demonstrates the approved technique.

Part way through the day, a mourning cloak butterfly dropped in to visit, landing on Brian's hands.  It was quite happy to have a bit of rest, out there in the middle of Algonquin's largest lake.

They stopped for a shore lunch, and David and Mike picked out a campsite for a future adventure.  Algonquin has that affect on people.

It is a stunningly beautiful place, no matter what season of the year. Right now, with the colour painting the hills, it is breath-taking.

Not nearly so breath-taking, however, as the lake trout Brian landed.  Dinner!
