The NSW Government has announced the welcomed news that the Dine and Discover voucher scheme will be fast-tracked to the Northern Beaches.

The pilot programme will be expanded to our local area in late February, providing some relief to hospitality, arts and tourism businesses who were hit hard over what should be the busy Christmas period.

We know how tough it’s been for our local businesses in recent times and as well as providing our own support initiatives, Council has been strongly advocating for relief and grant programs to be rolled out in our area. This voucher scheme is one step towards the road to recovery for local businesses.

The Dine and Discover voucher scheme will offer residents aged 18 and over four $25 vouchers, worth $100 in total. 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:

  • Two $25 vouchers to be used for eating in at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs from Monday to Thursday (excluding public holidays)
  • Two $25 vouchers to be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues, any day of the week (excluding public holidays).

To make sure our local businesses are supported, we’re urging all residents to use their vouchers on the Northern Beaches. Our local businesses are run by your neighbours, family and friends – now’s the time to get out there and show your support.

Local businesses who would like to be involved in the scheme need to register on the Service NSW website.
