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.

Water Lilies

The corners of Bondi bay fill up in summer with waterlilies and lily pads, providing wonderful habitat to the tiny fish and turtles that make their home there.

There is something indomitable about the tall yellow pond lilies, standing up over the lily pads, like sentinels.

One of our guests shared these photos with us -- we think the second one looks like a Monet watercolour!

In the pond, we have a lily of a different type entirely, now in glorious bloom.   Again, the water surface is speckled with water striders, and tiny insects, the shore is home to a myriad of frogs, and yes, there is no doubt a turtle in there too. We know there are creek chub in there.

The lilies offer shelter and shade.  And a feast for the eye as we pass.  Can't ask for more than that!
