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.

Running Rivers

This is a collection of some of my favourite pictures from the Flood that hit Muskoka on April 19, when 50 mm of rain fell in less than a day, releasing the snow that had been lying deep in Algonquin Park.

The downside of all that water has of course been property damage, roads washed out and all the usual downturns that come with water where it shouldn't be...

The upside has been some of the most spectacular photos along the rivers and waterfalls of the region.

Thanks to the various photographers who have shared their pictures with us!

Ragged Falls, on the Oxtongue River. Not only does this tiny
Provincial Park contain 9 separate ecosystems, it is
home to this specatucular Waterfall. Robin Tapley took the
photo -- and he had to rope in and mountaineer down to get it

Baysville dam. Nancy Tapley photo.

Buttermilk Falls, south on Hwy 35. Vic Cork took
the picture. The water was only one inch from coming over
the top of the dam itself.

  1. Amazing shots. That's the fiercest I've ever seen some of those waterfalls. Particularly the Hog's Trough, which I know well.
