Darling Harbour is one of Sydney’s most beautiful, delicious and exciting precincts, with so many incredible eateries to try and things to do. And there’s never been a better time to visit than right now, thanks to NSW Government’s new Dine and Discover program.

The initiative aims to encourage the community to get out and start spending at local dining, arts and tourism businesses. Under the scheme, NSW residents will receive four $25 vouchers to spend at their choice of participating COVID-safe restaurants, bars, cafes, pubs, museums and attractions.

How does Dine & Discover NSW work?

All NSW residents aged 18 and over will be eligible to claim four $25 vouchers. The vouchers can be used at participating NSW businesses who are registered as COVID safe.

The vouchers will be divided into two categories:

  • Two $25 vouchers to be used for takeaway* or dining in at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs, available to redeem 7 days a week, including public holidays until 31 August 2021.

    * The NSW Government has recently announced that Dine NSW Vouchers can now be used for delivery and takeaway from currently registered and eligible Dine NSW businesses during the stay-at-home order in Greater Sydney. Delivery direct to the home by the restaurant or café is recommended. Food may be picked up by customers from the venue but check-in with the NSW Government QR code is required. Dine NSW Vouchers cannot be redeemed for takeaway using third-party delivery platforms. 
  • Two $25 vouchers to be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues, available to redeem 7 days a week, including public holidays 31 August 2021.

Hospitality vouchers can only be used for dining in, so make sure you book a table before they’re gone!
