History[edit]

Westfield Marion was built in 1968 on a large expanse of land bordered by Sturt, Diagonal and Morphett Roads, and has seen extensions in 1982, 1989, 1997 and 2016. The 1997 extension saw the centre expand to a floorspace of roughly 119,000 m2.

Westfield Marion achieved major Australian firsts upon redevelopment in 1997 as the first shopping centre to have all three department stores, as well as all three discount department stores.

There is a 9.1 metre high replica of the Statue of Liberty above the upper-floor external concourse, originally promoting the "New York Bar and Grill", but remains despite a change of lease.
