If you live in NSW and have your Dine and Discover vouchers ready to use, then why not spend them at local attractions at Nelson Bay, to support the local economy. There are various family friendly cafes, clubs and restaurants which accept the vouchers (such as Wests Nelson Bay, Blueys and The Little Nel), as well as local attractions such as Oakvale Wildlife Park. See here for a business finder to help you find a business around town. (Please note, at the time of writing, the "Dine" vouchers can only be used Monday to Thursday).
