The state government on Thursday also flagged it would be expanding the Dine and Discover program, offering NSW residents an additional voucher in each category to use before June 2022.
"You'll find them in your ServiceNSW app in time for Summer or you can contact ServiceNSW and they can send them to you," Minister Victor Dominello said.
NSW residents aged 18 years and over who are yet to apply will be able to do so until the program ends and will receive all six $25 vouchers.
