Households are being reminded to spend any remaining Dine & Discover NSW Vouchers, with the 30 June deadline just around the corner.

The NSW Government has released data, indicating the Wollongong Local Government Area is 9th on the state list for un-used vouchers totalling $8,519,950.

Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said the program has been a game changer for local businesses and families.

“The vouchers have been an overwhelming success, by getting more customers through doors of businesses and boosting household budgets,” Mr Dominello said.

“The program has served its intended purpose by supporting our local hospitality, cultural and entertainment businesses, all of which were hit hard by the pandemic.

“Across the State, almost half a billion dollars has been invested across 16,600 businesses, but there is still money to be redeemed.
