To encourage businesses to expand outdoor dining into carparks and gardens, the state government have offered $5000 in grants in a bid to revive the NSW hospitality industry post-lockdown.
Treasurer Matt Kean said it was time for "families to ditch the microwave, to forget the dishwasher and put a pause on Netflix," instead asking residents to "get out and dine and discover".
“Alfresco dining is not only a great way to dine, it’s a safe way to socialise as we open up,” Mr Kean said.
“That’s why we are supporting new outdoor entertainment and dining precincts to pop up right across the state.”

Premier Dominic Perrottet said he wants businesses to be free and to flourish.
"We want people right across the state to enjoy the best that NSW has to offer," he announced.
"We've got some of the best food and best activities, not just in Australia, but in the world".
"We think these changes today will help our businesses flourish over the summer months as we get through this pandemic," the Premier encouraged.
Councils can also apply for up to $500,000 in grants to improve high streets and surrounding areas.
