Dubbo residents rushing to redeem their Dine and Discover vouchers can relax.
The NSW government is extending the economic stimulus program by a month to July 31.
Every adult in NSW is eligible for four $25 vouchers to spend across 14,000 participating businesses including many in Dubbo.
Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello reports of an "enthusiastic uptake" of the vouchers by about two out of three adults.
"More than $105 million has been spent directly in registered business regionally compared to almost $200 million in establishments in Sydney," he said.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the program was helping to "fire-up our economy".
"This extension will ensure everyone has a chance to use all four of their vouchers, which I'm sure will be particularly handy in the school holidays," he said.
More than five million vouchers have been redeemed at food and beverage outlets; 1.2 million at movie theatres, and 370,000 at heritage venues such as museums and art galleries.
