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 the largest private collection on display in South Australia, includes early Australian dolls, modern hard plastic and vinyl dolls, national and celebrity dolls and features over four decades of Barbie® dolls. We also have the beautiful fashion dolls including Gene, Tyler Wentworth and others. Some displays are interactive. There is a range of boys' toys and a model railway set.
The gallery allows easy access for wheelchairs. Coach tours, school groups and community associations are very welcome. There is a small entry charge.
River Dolls of Goolwa was the first Australian retail outlet to sell Gene dolls online, howevefr these are no longer being produced. If you are interested in any particular dolls, you can contact us directly.
Please note that all prices are in Australian dollars and include GST. Prices are subject to change without notice. Major credit cards and EFTPOS welcome including UnionPay. We also have a PayPal facility for payment of invoices. Layby facilities are available for items not on special.
Lyn has written a book A Guide to the River Dolls Collection which is available for sale $8.00 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.
