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.

Getting the View into Focus

Algonquin Park is not the only place to come to enjoy great lookouts and viewing of the leaves. Pretty much anywhere up here in North Muskoka will do the job.   And if you are in the neighbourhood, and not afraid of heights, where better to get that panoramic view than from the Dorset Lookout Tower?   Once upon a history, this was a fire station -- if you are at the Algonquin Park  Visitor Centre you can step inside the old lookout tower that once graced the top of this structure.
The view is astonishing, particularly at this time of year.   But that's not all -- up at the top of the Lookout, there is this wonderful bit of interactive art.  Be sure to stop and take the opportunity to gaze through these binoculars! 
It's a very creative piece.   Thanks go to Karen, at the Oxtongue Craft Cabin (another very creative place, and well worth stopping by for a snoop about, Visa firmly in hand) for these lovely photos from Dorset!

  1. The fire tower's a great stop. Particularly at this time of year!
