Dine and Discover voucher scheme fast-tracked to Sydney’s Northern Beaches

Dine and Discover voucher scheme fast-tracked to Sydney’s Northern Beaches
January 18, 2021

In the wake of Sydney’s Northern Beaches recent lockdown, the NSW Government is fast tracking the 'Dine and Discover' voucher scheme to the area.

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

Northern Beaches Council has been strongly advocating for relief and grant programs to be rolled out in the area and welcomes the voucher scheme as being 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 COVIDSafe.

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 local businesses are supported, Council is urging all residents to use their vouchers within the Northern Beaches highlighting that local businesses which are run by neighbours, family and friends need support.

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