"We are excited to officially open the marketplace on Thursday, March 15," said centre management's Lynn-Maree Travers.

"The centre will provide a greater variety as an easy, convenient shopping destination for the people of the Central Highlands region."

Ms Travers said it would meet community expectations by providing a greater range of stores and improved retail amenities, while maintaining a design that complements the regional location.

Grand opening celebrations include appearances by children's characters, giveaways and the chance for shoppers to win WISH gift cards.
