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.

Flying Our Colours

We are flying our colours at the entrance to Bondi Village Resort.   

We fly these particular flags for a reason.

Canada -- well, that's a no-brainer. We could not be more proud to be Canadian.

Union Jack - that is for our grandparents, Joseph and Elizabeth, who came here from London in 1905; and for my Mom, Rosemary, raised in Windsor, England

Stars and Stripes -- that is for our good neighbours just to the south, and also for Carol, who holds citizenship in both countries (and yes, it is flying, just not quite in the frame in this photo!)

Brazil -- Carol grew up in Brazil...

Australia -- Joseph Tapley made three tours to Australia and New Zealand in the 1890s, with the Williamson and Musgrave theatre company. He named the farm Bondi, after the beach in Sydney, so we have to fly that flag, mate.

And the Ontario standard, because, well, because Ontario...

  1. That makes sense. I follow some photoblogs from Sydney that mention Bondi in the Australian sense.
