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.

Dorset, Oohs and Aahs

 The Dorset Community Group gets together each Canada Day to put on one of the best Fireworks displays around.

Launching launching from a barge out in the middle of Trading Bay, the fireworks can be seen from so many vantage points.

People line the shore, the town dock, the fabled hump-backed bridge.  And boats line the lake. 

Donations are collected to help defray the cost of the fireworks and to go towards initiatives of the Community Group -- which to date include things like the Children's Playground, the renovated town docks, the playing field, the website and many more.

This is entirely driven by volunteers. It's not possible to say enough good things about volunteers.

 They are amazing.

If you missed the Fireworks at Dorset, hopefully you caught them at Baysville, where their local Fire Hall puts on quite a display at the dam.

But if you missed both those venues, don't despair.  On the August long weekend, Firefest comes to Dwight Beach and the fireworks will be out in force there too.

Thanks to Sarah for taking these wonderful photos of the display on Saturday night.

And thanks to the Volunteers who make it all happen.

  1. I have seen Firefest one year. The lake's a very good location for it.
