Froghollow on Blackwood (15) is a large garden in a valley with many trees in a parkland setting. The many deciduous trees and avenues of Cottonwoods serve as a fire-retardant barrier.

Rokewood (175) is a garden on a hillside to the east of Bridgetown.  

A pleasant Cottage garden with places to sit, a vegetable garden and collection of citrus trees. 

The Crimson Glory Vine, a relative of the grapevine, colours beautifully in this area where there are cold nights and sunny days.
