The NSW Government launched the Dine and Discover NSW voucher scheme to encourage the community to get out and about, to support  dining, arts and tourism businesses, and to stimulate spending in the economy. 

The scheme is ending on Thursday June 30. Your vouchers will expire if you do not use them on or before this date. 

NSW residents aged 18 and over can apply for 6 x $25 vouchers, worth $150 in total.

How does it work?

Every NSW resident aged 18 and over will be eligible for four $25 vouchers worth $100 in total. The vouchers can be used at participating NSW businesses that are registered as COVID safe.

The Dine & Discover NSW vouchers will be divided into two categories:

  • three $25 vouchers to be used for eating in at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs, wineries and clubs
  • three $25 vouchers to be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues.

Since 3 December 2021, Dine & Discover NSW expanded from 4 to 6 vouchers. If you’ve already applied before this date, an additional 2 x $25 vouchers will automatically appear in the Service NSW app.

The vouchers:

  • can be used 7 days a week, including public holidays.
  • can be used at participating NSW businesses that are registered as COVID Safe
  • The Dine & Discover NSW Voucher scheme has been extended. You now have until 30 June 2022 to use your vouchers.

How do I apply for the vouchers?
