The NSW Government has launched Dine & Discover NSW to encourage the community to support dining, arts and tourism businesses and stimulate spending in the economy.
Service NSW has prepared a comprehensive tool kit (link below) to assist in preparing your business to use and accept the voucher program. Every NSW resident aged 18 and over will be eligible for four $25 Dine & Discover NSW vouchers worth $100 in total from March.
Two Dine & Discover NSW vouchers can be used for eating in at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs, and two vouchers can be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues. Residents can use their vouchers to dine at businesses from Monday to Thursday, and seven days a week at businesses offering entertainment and recreation. Public holidays are excluded.
Businesses can register online now to participate in the scheme. Vouchers will be distributed to NSW residents from early 2021, with some residents being the first to redeem their vouchers in selected trial locations prior to a state-wide rollout.
