Australians have discovered a new 'side hustle' that can make them up to $300 for a task as simple as going to the pub or riding the bus.

Side hustles are rising in popularity as Australians continue to battle the cost of living crisis - with some resorting to re-selling firewood online, while others iron people's laundry for an extra $400 a week.

'Mystery shopping' is a method used by marketing research companies and organisations who want to assess their sales, service, and job performance compared to competitors.

'Imagine a side hustle that not only pays you but also treats you to incredible experiences - that's the magic of mystery shopping,' Louise Heffernan, owner of Mystery Management, told FEMAIL.

'In today's economy, people are absolutely loving the hospitality side of our business.

'We conduct mystery shopping at over 300 pubs and fine dining restaurants along the eastern seaboard.'

The job consists of people who anonymously shop at stores or eat at venues and write reports about their experience.

Each task pays a certain amount and the pay typically ranges from $20 to $300 depending on the nature of work.

As businesses struggle with how average consumers view their service, mystery shopping is a great way to measure how a company stacks up against its competitors.

Ms Heffernan provided further insight into the job.

'Picture this: you enjoy a delightful meal, and we foot the bill. Plus, you get paid to write a report on your experience, covering customer service, food quality, and cleanliness.'

She claimed it was a 'genuinely a fun gig' people keep coming back for - and Mystery Management's admin team also frequently dips their toes into the industry.

Ms Heffernan revealed that mystery shopping is now so much more than going to see if a restaurant will serve you without checking your ID card.

'We also mystery shop for U-turn Fashion (thrift shops) - a huge hit among Gen Z, who get paid to go 'thrifting',' she said.

'We cover supermarkets, bakeries, bottle shops, and chemists - and even all the ferries across Sydney Harbour, along with buses and trams.

'In essence, you can get paid to eat, shop, and travel!'
