Business Registrations Open for Dine and Discover NSW

By Katy Isherwood

To support the dining, arts and tourism industry the NSW Government has launched Dine & Discover NSW in an effort to encourage the community to support these industries.

From March, four vouchers of $25 each will be available for NSW residents aged over 18 to spend at participating COVID Safe NSW businesses. The scheme is currently being tested in a range of locations including The Rocks and Broken Hill.

Registration is open now for businesses in eligible industries wanting to be part of the Dine & Discover program. The eligibility criteria for a business wishing to participate in the scheme include that the business must:

  • Have an ABN and be registered for GST
  • Operate in NSW
  • Be a COVID safe registered business with a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place
  • Operate in an eligible industry (including cafes, restaurants, pubs, wineries, recreational activities such as go-karting and more)

Registration as a participating business can be completed using your MyService NSW Account. Registrations will be reviewed by Service NSW who will notify you of the outcome within 5 business days. If eligible, you will be able to scan Dine & Discover vouchers received by your customers using the Service NSW for Business app on your smartphone or tablet. Once the voucher is processed using the app, payment should be made to you within 5 days.

To find out more information on eligibility to register as a participating business or to register, visit or get in touch with your WDF Professional team member.
