NSW residents will have two more reasons to celebrate catching up with friends and family this summer with additional Dine & Discover vouchers becoming available.


All NSW residents over the age of 18 will receive one more ‘Dine’ and one more ‘Discover’ voucher to support local people enjoy the best of what NSW has to offer and provide a boost to economic activity.


Local Nationals Member of the Legislative Council Ben Franklin said this was exciting news for the Northern Rivers region.


“The Far North Coast has some of the best dining and tourism experiences in the State and so it’s fantastic that local people will have more opportunities to enjoy them,” Mr Franklin said.


“This is on top of the four original vouchers that people have access to, and so another two vouchers is good news for businesses, good news for the community and good news for local industry.


“The additional vouchers have been made possible thanks to a further $250 million investment by the NSW Government in the program to help businesses recover from months of restrictions and encourage people to enjoy what they love most.


“All six vouchers can be used up until the end of June 2022 which gives people time to plan ahead for school holidays, family trips or a special activity with friends.”


Mr Franklin said the vouchers would again be delivered via the ServiceNSW app.


“You’ll find them in your ServiceNSW app in time for summer or you can contact ServiceNSW and they can send them to you,” Mr Franklin said.


To date, almost 4.8 million people have taken advantage of the voucher program since its launch in March, giving businesses a $430 million boost.


NSW residents aged 18 years and over who are yet to apply will be able to do so until the program ends and will receive all six $25 vouchers.


Participating businesses do not need to reapply. Those who want to join the program are encouraged to register, download the scanner app and get ready to redeem.
