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.

"I am the Light"

Gloria Woodside send me this lovely photo of the little Glenmount Church, (also known as Norway Point Church) all beautifully lit at night.

It was just too pretty not to share!

This church was built in 1944, following the collapse of the original church after a heavy fall of snow.

That church was built in 1908. During the rebuild, the interior was left in its natural state, showing the beauty of the pine rafters and timbers and remains in its original design today. A large cathedral window allows the worshippers to look beyond the green woods and into the blue sky. The pulpit was saved from the cave-in along with the oak chancel chairs. The old hard backed chairs of the first church were replaced with the lovely oak pews that remain in place today. The church has and still remains the focus of the community of Norway Point.

In 1969, a memorial cairn with the original church bell was dedicated.
