Woodsies Gem Shop is a family owned and operated business 10 mins from Mildura. Its showroom boasts timeless jewellery, exquisite gemstones, beautiful carvings, gifts and much more. You'll be blown away by the Cave-Inn restaurant and dining area, and enticed by the local staff at the Little Gem Cafe. Family attractions include Aladdin's Cave - a walk-through display of gemstones sourced internationally in the Woods' family private collection. ($2 adults, $1 children) There is the Garden Crazy Maze - a maze that covers nearly a hectare of dead-ends and arguments. Try your luck to beat the 1min 39sec record set by a local student. Allow approximately 30-45 minutes! ($2 adults, $1 children) Come in today and speak to our local, friendly staff about any inquiries that you may have!

Visited with friends from Melbourne and their children. Meals were nothing flash but ok prices. Kids loved the maze and spent ages chasing each other. The cave was interesting. A huge collection of rocks from all over the world. If you like jewellery there is lots to choose from.

The entire complex of Woodies has been designed to represent the interior of a series of linked caves, and although the lowering craggy ceilings might give some people a severe dose of claustrophobia, they certainly provide an appropriate ambiance. As we arrived, Mr. Woods junior was just starting a quite fascinating demonstration of how rings and other items were cast... More

fascinating collection of gemstones. Most of them from Australia and set on site. Gemstone cutting is another attraction

We went here to buy Jewellery. The quality and choice are excellent. If you love jewellery, you'll love Woodsies. There's a cafe and a maze outside, generally a very nice place to visit.

Chris Woods is a whiz at selecting quality gems for his jewellery. Why go to a suburban retail jeweller and pay expensively, when at Woodies you can get a quality gem/s in gold or silver at a fraction of the retail cost and in a timely manner. Chris and his staff are friendly and helpful, and it would be a... More

I always buy my crystals from this shop. Locals who know their crystals and either buy them from well known sources or they fossick for them themselves. Great variety at the best prices!

Called in here as part of a coach tour. I hadn't heard about it before so it was a huge surprise. There are so many stones and types of jewellery on display it becomes overwhelming. I purchased 5 peices and after comparing prices elsewhere I think they were excellent value. Now I wish I'd purchased more to give away as... More

For $2 per adult and $1 per child, the maze is well worth a visit! The children had an absolute ball getting lost in the maze. I think we were stuck in there for a good hour. It was hilarious! There is also Aladdin's Cave, although I think the children were a bit young for it (8, 7 and 5).... More
