Our picks of the best RACV member benefits to redeem in June

(Many tickets need to be pre-purchased online; always read the terms and conditions before booking.)
 

$9 Movie Mondays

Movie Mondays are the new tight-arse Tuesdays. Score $9 tickets when you pre-purchase your Village Cinema movie tickets online or from an RACV retail store. You can also add on a popcorn and drink combo for just $7. If you can't wait for a Monday movie date, take advantage of cheap movie tickets all year round with an exclusive 30 per cent discount off the standard ticket price at Village, Hoyts and Palace Cinemas.

Dolphin and whale watching on Phillip Island

Set sail on a winter dolphin and whale adventure with 20 per cent off Winter Whale and Dolphin cruises with Wildlife Coast Cruises at Phillip Island.

Discount cellar door sips 

Get your Yarra Valley vino on. Re-stock the wine fridge with 15 per cent off wine purchases when you show your card at Punt Road Winery, De Bortoli Estate and Five Oaks Vineyard. Stop in at the Healesville Hotel for lunch and save 10 per cent on selected meals, then continue on to Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse for 15 per cent off cider purchases and finish off with a free beer tasting paddle at Hargreaves Hill

Ballarat Wildlife Park

Plan a purr-fect Sumatran tiger play date with 20 per cent off admission to Ballarat Wildlife Park. The Tiger Sanctuary is one of the park's newest attractions and has been designed to support tiger conservation efforts in Sumatra, where it is estimated that fewer than 500 Sumatran tigers remain in the wild.

Make it a mini-break with 25 per cent off accommodation at RACV Goldfields Resort, and keep the fun going the next day with a trip to nearby family favourite Sovereign Hill, where a new multi-sensory evening show, Aura, has replaced 25-year-old light and sound show Blood on the Southern Cross. (Discounted tickets apply here, too.)

Snooze

If you've been putting off buying a new mattress or upgrading your winter pillows, now's the time to splash out with 15 per cent off full-priced items and 5 per cent off already reduced items when you show your card at Snooze.
