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 Not Over the Dam = Smaller Beach

we had guests this week from Sydney, Australia. Now, yes, in case you wondered, my grandfather did name the farm for the beach in Sydney, back in 1905 when he and grandmother settled here. That was before the dam at Baysville lifted the lake 5 feet and flooded out much of the beach. Never mind, that is water not over the dam... we now have a lovely shallow sandy shoreline that is ideal for swimming. Tom sent us these comparison photos -- one taken in March at the iconic Sydney Beach, (which he says, is no fun for swimming -- too many dangerous critters, too much undertow, too much pollution from the city...too many people) and one taken from his cottage here. (which is ideal for swimming, we hasten to add.) Interesting... on the whole, we prefer to be here.
