Winter or summer, the formal gardens of Virginia Lake are a delight by day, and at night, the trees and lake fountain are softly illuminated. A gentle 25-minute stroll leads around the lake through woodlands and gardens and past rose-and-wisteria pergolas. There's a pleasant café here, too, with indoor and outdoor dining. The lake is just north of Wanganui, off State Highway 3.
