From today, the Dine and Discover voucher scheme has officially expanded from four to six vouchers. If you’ve already applied – whether for the last round of vouchers, or this latest lot – they should have automatically appeared in your Service NSW app (unless you received your original vouchers in paper format; here’s how to get your new ones). If you haven’t yet applied, here’s how to do so. You’re eligible to apply for the vouchers if you’re a NSW resident aged 18 and over.
What do I get, and how can I use them?
Each voucher is worth $25, and in the same vein as the last round, one is for dining out and the other for entertainment. They’ve been launched by the NSW Government to help boost the economy post-lockdown, and you have until June 30, 2022 to cash them in. Each voucher has a unique QR code, just show it at a participating business to redeem.
Is anywhere doing great deals like last time?
There are – but not as many as for the first drop. Experience platform Klook has joined forces with a bunch of attractions to offer $25 entry – meaning if you cash in your voucher your visit is free. Get gratis entry to Taronga Zoo, rent a canoe from Manly Kayak Hire, or enjoy a guided walking tour of Sydney Opera House. You can even get out of town with free access to Scenic World in the Blue Mountains, go on a tour of a craft brewery in Newcastle, or stomp some grapes at a Hunter Valley winery. Check out the full range of offers here.
Who else is accepting the vouchers?
You can cash them in for loads of arts events happening across the city in the coming months – the Opera House, Sydney Theatre Company, Moonlight Cinema and more all accept them.
Most movie theatres accept them, including Hoyts, Event Cinemas, Dendy, Palace and the Ritz. Sealife aquarium, the Art Gallery of NSW, and MCA are also taking the vouchers. Plus, many businesses accepting the discover vouchers will also let you redeem your dine vouchers while you’re there, for popcorn, choc-tops or a sandwich at a museum cafe.
And if you’re keen on redeeming your vouchers at a swish restaurant, your fave takeaway joint or for some snacks at a local bar (you can’t use them to buy alcohol), check out the list of participating businesses here.
