NSW Dine and Discovery voucher scheme extended until the end of July


THE NSW state Government has extended the validity of the Dine and Discover vouchers by a month to July 31 of this year.

The voucher system provides any resident of NSW over the age of eighteen with two $25 vouchers that can be used for dining in at participating restaurants, cafés, bars, wineries, pubs or clubs and two $25 vouchers for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues.

To date less than half of the allocated vouchers have been used across the state, and the extension will allow people to use them during the school holidays.

Commenting on the extension Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said, “This program is a win-win for communities, it provides local businesses with much needed stimulus and families with hip-pocket relief.

“People of all ages and walks of life are giving them a go and we don’t want anyone to miss out.

“This extension will ensure everyone has a chance to use all four of their vouchers, which I’m sure will be particularly handy in the school holidays.”

In Coffs Harbour there are 90 dining establishments that have registered with the scheme and 30 businesses that can redeem the discovery vouchers.

While many people have used the dining vouchers already, some are finding it harder to use the discovery vouchers.

Some of the local venues that can accept the discovery vouchers include the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park, Treetops at Sealy lookout, the National Cartoon Gallery, Jetty Dive Centre, The Big Banana, Coffs Skydivers and the Jetty Memorial Theatre.
