River Dolls Of Goolwa

Galleries, Museums and Collections

River Dolls of Goolwa offers two experiences for all members of the family when you visit the historic river port of Goolwa. A display of over 3000 items showcases dolls, toys, teddies, trains and other childhood memorabilia. A large Barbie display, boys toys, national dolls and famous characters will bring back many memories. All members of the family will find something of interest as you spend time wandering through the award-winning display. There is a small charge for visiting the museum.

In keeping with our theme of ‘childhood memories’ we have a lolly shop, Dollies Lollies – Sweet Memories. Indulge yourself by selecting from the large range of Australian, English and Dutch sweets from Dollies Lollies.

Situated on the main street of Goolwa opposite the Ampol Service Station, River Dolls is air conditioned with easy wheelchair access. Group and school bookings can be made by prior arrangement and early or late opening can be arranged for coach groups. We have resumed normal operations for the museum following the COVID19 pandemic . Everyone is welcome and we encourage you to observe the appropriate social distancing, hand care and any current government regulations.
