Dolls Point is a small suburb in southern Sydney, located 17 km south of the Sydney central business district. Dolls Point is in the local government area of the City of Rockdale.

Dolls Point is a quiet residential suburb that has managed to maintain an uncluttered landscape. Its village feel makes it a family friendly neighbourhood. It is home to fine sailing, water views and abundant parkland.

A small group of shops is located at the intersection of Clareville Avenue and Russell Avenue, on the border with Sans Souci and Sandringham. It includes Sans Souci Library, Dolls Point petrol station, grocery shop, liquor shop, chemist, hairdresser, take-away shops and a café.

Dolls Point is bounded generally by Sandringham Street in the north, Botany Bay in the east and south and Waldron Street and the suburb of Sans Souci in the west.

Dolls Point was originally a deserted landscape, which was considered uninhabitable. The origins of the name are unclear but legend has it that it was named for an escaped convict who took shelter in the grim landscape to hide from the authorities.
