Shoalhaven City is one of the leading regions in the uptake of the NSW Government’s Dine and Discover vouchers, with 19.7% of business registrations in Regional NSW coming from the Shoalhaven.

As part of a major economic stimulus package to support dining, arts and tourism businesses in NSW, residents aged 18 years and older can apply for four $25 vouchers worth $100 in total, to spend in participating businesses.

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley is encouraged by the response from local businesses.

“Council’s Economic Development staff have been actively working with Service NSW to communicate the opportunity to businesses. Recent figures confirm that at least 50 percent of eligible businesses have successfully registered to date,” said Clr Findley.

“Although our region has enjoyed a surge in tourism over the summer months and on weekends, this scheme encourages mid-week dining and activities which will give our local economy an added boost,” she said.

“It isn’t too late for local businesses to apply, registration for the scheme is still open,” Clr Findley said.

The vouchers are in 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, available 7 days a week, excluding public holidays.
