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.

the splendor of the turkey

Our cousin Robin Tapley snapped this photo of a wild turkey hen.  This is for any of you who have only seen these birds scurrying off through the long grass or brush, who think they are just big and dark brown and boring of colour.

Not so fast! While they are brown of colour, they come with shades, and iridescence and spectacular beauty.  If only you can get close enough to see!   Right now, they are clustering for the breeding season, the toms fanning their big tails and gobbling in the hills of a morning.
