How to participate in Dine & Discover NSW

Small business owner

The Dine & Discover program has been introduced by the NSW Government to encourage NSW residents to go out and spend money to support small and regional businesses across the State most impacted by COVID-19. 

The program provides vouchers to every NSW resident, aged 18 and over, to spend at dining, arts and tourism businesses of their choice. 

How do I register my business to be part of the program?

You can register your business to participate in the program at any time with Service NSW. To register, you need to have a MyServiceNSW Account, two personal identity documents, your business details, and your business bank account details. Your registration may take up to 5 business days to be reviewed. 

Once your business is approved as a Dine & Discover NSW business, you’ll be given details on how to be accepted into the scheme and how to take part.  

You’ll need to download the Service NSW for Business app to your business phone or tablet. Once you are accepted, you’ll be able to accept and redeem vouchers straightaway by scanning them via the app. 

To see if your business is eligible and to register, visit Service NSW.

How do the vouchers work? 

Each eligible NSW resident will receive four $25 vouchers worth $100 in total, to spend in registered COVID-Safe businesses.  

The vouchers will be provided into two categories: 

  • Two x $25 vouchers to be used at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs 7 days a week, excluding public holidays. 
  • Two x $25 vouchers to be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues, available 7 days a week, excluding public holidays. 

The Government announced on 15 October 2021 that NSW residents would receive one additional Dine and one additional Discover voucher. It also extended the time limit for using all 6 vouchers to June 2022.

How do consumers apply for the vouchers? 

NSW residents can apply online to receive their vouchers through the latest version of the Service NSW app or via the website.

Where are the vouchers accepted? 

The vouchers can only be used at eligible businesses that have also implemented a COVID Safety Plan and are registered as COVID Safe.
