Dine and Discover vouchers have landed on the Northern Beaches.

The vouchers:

  • can be used 7 days a week
  • can be used at participating NSW businesses that are registered as COVID Safe
  • cannot be used on public holidays
  • have now been extended to June 2022
  • While restrictions are in place, customers may use vouchers for takeaway delivered directly to their home by venues. Vouchers can’t be redeemed for orders via third party delivery platforms, such as Uber Eats.

While you might have an idea of where you’re planning to spend your Dine vouchers, we’re thinking you could use a little inspiration for your two $25 Discover vouchers.

Don’t worry we’ve got plenty of ideas for you above and below the water so you can get out exploring while supporting our local tourism operators. To find out which businesses are accepting Discover vouchers, go to mybusiness.service.nsw.gov.au
