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.

Fly By Night

Here is a better look at our northern flying squirrel, who is currently dropping by in the evenings to check out what's on the menu at the bird feeder.

Along with the summer chipmunks, these little guys are so darned cute that they get a pass in the 'how dare you steal all the birdseed' department.

Light as can be, they don't actually fly, but extend their arms and legs to stretch out the loose membrance between and glide -- considerable distances.  They climb like, well, like squirrels, dashing up almost any surface to get the height and then simply leap into space, arms spread.  They are without doubt one of the most beautiful creatures out there.

  1. I remember seeing them for the first time when my parents lived up in the area- watching them glide down from the trees to the bird feeder was atonishing.
