How to get the best out of your Dine & Discover vouchers

It’s never been a more affordable time to visit the Opera House. Here’s our guide to maximising value on your $150 Dine & Discover vouchers.

How they work

Sydney is returning to normal and Sydneysiders are gradually starting to peer out of their caves, looking for assurance that it’s OK to have fun again.

Well it is OK. In fact, it’s encouraged. The NSW Government, like a parent during school holidays, has handed you a wad of cash and told you to ‘go wild’. And where better to go wild than the Sydney Opera House?

You can access your vouchers through the Service NSW app on your phone. To apply, hit the voucher button and then you'll just need to provide a couple documents proving your identity.

How to apply for your Dine & Discover voucher

With that wad of cash comes a few caveats:

  • You will receive six vouchers each valued at $25
  • Two of them are ‘Dine’ vouchers and two are ‘Discover’ vouchers
  • The Dine vouchers can be used at Opera Bar, Opera Kitchen, Portside, Bennelong and Theatre Bars 
  • The Discover vouchers can be used to book shows and experiences across Opera, Music, Theatre, Dance, Comedy, Talks and Tours, and unlike the Dine vouchers, can be claimed on our website!
  • The vouchers can we used any day of the week (including public holidays) until 30 June 2022

To claim your Discover voucher on the Opera House website, simply enter your code (left) to the Discover Voucher Code field in the checkout step (right). You can't use both of your Discover vouchers at once, but you can combine vouchers with someone else. Make sense?

What to use them on

Dinner and a show

Cash in your Dine & Discover vouchers all at once. Book one of our four dining options, then double down with an evening at the theatre. There are plenty of quality shows on the horizon, no matter your taste. Dance, musical theatre, kids shows, classical and contemporary music, opera – we've got it all.

A drink and a feed

This is self-explanatory. Rock up anytime, QR code in hand, order yourself a pizza and a beverage from Opera Bar, and pay the difference – which will basically amount to pocket change. Alternatively, Opera Kitchen has now reopened as a 'market food hall' of sorts, featuring everything from ramen to pasta to cheese cake. Certainly worth a try.

Entertain kids and adults these school holidays

School holidays are upon us. Can you believe it? Get those holiday plans sorted and take the whole family to see Alison Lester AM's classic book Magic Beach come to life on stage this summer. Every year, an everyday family go on a beach holiday but this isn't just any beach - it's Magic Beach, where everything you can imagine becomes real, however this year is different. Once you’ve finished your holiday at Magic Beach it’s time for adventure. Can you help Scaredy Cat overcome her fears? Scaredy comes from a long line of fierce hunters and has been called in for one of the biggest jobs, with the sneakiest rodents, only problem is, she’s terrified of mice. On Scaredy’s mission whole new world comes to life teaching Scaredy a lesson about courage she'll never forget. Now here's one for the adults, follow up Scaredy Cat with a midweek lunch at Opera Kitchen. Our Let's Do Lunch offer includes a main meal from the Japanese-inspired menu or Pasta Bar, and a beer or wine for $30. Plus when you use your Dine voucher that comes down to only $5! That’s an outright bargain! Never fear Opera Kitchen caters for little ones with a terrific kid’s menu.

Belly laugh your way through the night

After a long 2021 get ready to laugh away the year with another massive Summer of Comedy. See Celia Pacquola, Tommy Little, Dave Hughes, Sam Simmons, Geraldine Hickey and more. There’s sure to be big laughs all round! Plus once the Summer of Comedy ends everyone's favourite duo The Umbilical Brothers will bring their signature unbelievable human performance crossed with special-effects wizardry. 

Summer of Comedy

Feel the romance of the original bohemian love story

Treat yourself to a long awaited night at the opera for the final season of one of Opera Australia’s most popular productions La Bohème. Set among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s Berlin, Mimì meets Rodolfo and it’s love at first touch. Some emotions are too big for words alone, and for that, we have music. La Bohème exposes your soul to the feelings that only music can express. The music soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss.

Spend big, save big

This is the fanciest option. So you’ve been cooped up at home waiting for that one big night to splurge? Well the time has come. The Dine vouchers should make a half-decent dent in the bill over at the incredible Bennelong (or should at least cover one of Peter Gilmore's luscious cherry jam lamingtons). 

Take a tour

Ever wanted to explore under the sails and beyond the stage but never made the effort? Uncover the stories, history and magic of the Opera House with our Opera House or Architectural Tours and get 60% off tickets with your Discover vouchers. Be a tourist in your own city for a fraction of the cost.
