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.

Market Scenes

Jim Allen entertains. And he is AWESOME!
 I had the chance to drop in to the Dwight Farmers' Market today. It is held every Tuesday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on the grounds of Gouldie Park, right beside the Post Office.

Here are some shots of this growing and interesting market venue, well worth the visit.
Fabulous wood carving, garden accessories, this gets two thumbs up from us!

meet not only the beekeeper, but the bees themselves. Sample the honey. Take some home.

Taste test the different grades of syrup, to find out which you like best. Did you know there are four different grades?  Now you do...

Aches and pains melt away with buckwheat heat. She'll be happy to explain how and why.

Who isn't a sucker for sparkly things?

It's called Thinstone, and there is a new store opening soon in Dwight that will be dealing with it. Meanwhile, you can find it here. Interesting, and lovely, and ideal for the cottage or patio.

How Kind! Rowanwood Farm even brought a water bucket for thirsty poodles...  Taffy says 'Thanks"

Rowanwood also brought veggies, and an awesome crop of fresh garlic...

There were plenty of other vendors, making it a really interesting place to spend some time (and money)
We recommend you add it to your List of Things to Do in Dwight!

  1. I'm still surprised by the number of vendors, but then there are quite a lot more people in the area during the summer.

    I'm not sure about the Whitney side of the park- I know there's one in Barry's Bay- but it occurs to me that might be the closest farmer's market for many people spending a week in Algonquin, along the corridor.
