About River Dolls and Dollies Lollies
The River Dolls of Goolwa collection is owned by Lyn Clark. You and your family can re-discover childhood memories as you walk around the colourful gallery.
The exhibition which is one of the largest private collections on display in South Australia, includes early Australian dolls, modern hard plastic and vinyl dolls, national and celebrity dolls and features over five decades of Barbie® dolls. We also have the beautiful fashion dolls including Gene, Tyler Wentworth and others. There is a selection of boys' toys and a model railway set.
The gallery allows easy access for wheelchairs and walkers. Coach tours, school groups and community associations are very welcome. There is a small entry charge for the doll gallery.
River Dolls of Goolwa was the first Australian retail outlet to sell Gene dolls online, however these are no longer being produced. We have a changing range of collectable dolls, especially Barbie® for sale. If you are interested in any particular dolls, you can contact us directly.
Please note that all prices listed are in Australian dollars and include GST. Shipping costs are extra. Prices are subject to change without notice. Major credit cards and EFTPOS welcome including UnionPay, SamsungPay and GPay. We also have a PayPal option for payment of invoices. Layby facilities are available for items not on special.
Lyn has written a guide book "A Guide to the River Dolls Collection" which is available for sale $9.00 AUD (which includes postage within Australia). River Dolls was awarded the Best Dressed Business in Goolwa for many years as part of the Tour Down Under. River Dolls has won two Fleurieu Tourism Awards and is now an Australian Accredited Tourism Business. River Dolls also abides by all required COVID-19 rules.
