New Zealand: The Shannara ChroniclesLake Wainamu: The Silver River
Lake Wainamu features as the Silver River in Season 1: Episode 3 of The Shannara Chronicles. In order to save the dying druid Allanon, Wil and Amberle head for the river, as its mud is famed for certain healing properties.
Before you head off to the lake, you'll need to make a choice - either to walk through the stream bed (25 mins) or climb over the giant sand dunes (20 mins) to reach the lake.
Access via the dunes basically means tackling a single gigantic mountain of sand. On a hot summer day, the walk along the stream might be the better alternative.

For kids, walking towards the lake via the stream is probably much more fun.
