NSW $100 voucher scheme begins: Here’s who gets it first

NSW residents will be able to use $25 vouchers for restaurants in Broken Hill and The Rocks under the first phase of the state government’s $500 million entertainment revival scheme.

The state government will roll out the pilot of the $500 million Dine and Discover scheme this week, with a small group of customers and businesses in those areas to have access to the vouchers, according to The Daily Telegraph.

It will then be expanded to include Bega Valley, the Sydney CBD and the Northern Beaches later in February before a statewide rollout in March. The scheme will then run until 30 June 2021.

Under the scheme, NSW adults will receive four $25 vouchers to be spent on food or entertainment. The vouchers will be redeemable through the Service NSW app.

Businesses can register by following the prompts here.

It was originally intended to come into place in December 2020; however, the Northern Beaches and Berala clusters scuppered those plans.

The rollout comes as South Australian Premier Steven Marshall celebrates the success of a similar scheme in his state.

"Across round one and two of the vouchers, we've created more than 60,000 bookings, worth more than $31 million, getting people booking up the CBD and regions, and spending in our restaurants, cafes, bars and experiences around them," he said.

"We will now take away any lessons we have learnt from the second round of the Great State Vouchers, talk to the industry and gear up for round three."
