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.

Shifting Ground, and shifting Focus

Many of our guests will know The Beacon, the marina and convenience store at the corner of Hwy 60 and Hwy 35.  Kelly Webster Hammond, the daughter of Sharon Webster and sister of John Webster (who currently operates the store his parents Sharon and Dave ran for so many years)  was in Kathmandu when the earthquake struck.  She is a fierce young woman and an even fiercer fundraiser.  A few years ago she trekked to the top of Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity.

This year, she was part of the Dream Mountains Trek to Base Camp.  That never happened, but we are so relieved to report that Kelly is now home, and safe, following an incredible and life-changing experience that was certainly not the one they had all signed on for.

Kelly is re-directing her fund-raising efforts to help Nepal.

Here's a phone interview, one day after she finally got back on Canadian soil.

  1. I know someone from Ottawa was part of that trek. Good that she got back. What a tragedy.
