    Our Story

    The philosophy @ No.5 is simple – an open space where people from all walks of life can come together to share an experience – to enjoy being nourished – to leave feeling inspired.

    Everything that we do is directed toward communicating ideas about how we can create a more sustainable, open minded, ethical and responsible community.

    Our food is a vehicle to express how we feel – wholesome & artistic, colourful & creative – simple flavours with attention to the details.

    We use the best local, organic & bio-dynamic produce available & design our menu based upon the abundance of the season – the way it should be!!

    By supporting local growers we are not only promoting growth of the local economy, we are reducing transportation costs & unnecessary use of non-renewable energy, not to mention providing healthy & affordable food for our community – whilst tantalising your taste buds too!!

    Our goal is not only to support local, ecologically balanced farming practices, but to actively venture towards establishing a holistic model for a fully sustainable small business operation that supports all those involved – our guests, our suppliers, our workers & ultimately ourselves!

    Live music, movie nights, social events & community gatherings – there’s always something going on down @ No.5!

    We welcome you to come down & enjoy the space, we look forward to serving you soon!

    • JazzFestival

      Friday 15th August


      The first Bellingen Jazz Festival happened way back in August 1990. What started out as an idea formed by a group of friends sharing a few drinks has continued for twenty four years and become an enduring Festival that is now an important part of the cultural fabric of the Bellinger Valley.



      The festival has become a fine musical showcase and a tremendous family social occasion. Over the past twenty four years Bellingen has presented the complete range of jazz styles and the 24th will widen this range of music further, we understand that not all who come to the festival are died in the wool Jazz fanatics and so what we offer are tastes of a wide range of Jazz music and of music that influences Jazz. From Ragtime to Free, Blues to Funk, Traditional to Rap, and from Klezmer to Choro, from the Carribean to New Orleans … and the list goes on.


      The Festival’s “live music boutique” feel has given the music an immediacy that is so important to create a link between the performers and the audience. The Festival is run by dedicated volunteers and enjoys wide community support and strong local business sponsorship.


      This year is the 25th and is our biggest artist line up yet. We have new venues and a Street Party on Saturday Afternoon. Above all we have a huge range of music played by the best of musicians who are dedicated to ensure you have an unforgettable musical experience.

      Mr Black and Blues

      Hot on the heels of the Australian Blues and Roots Chart #1 debut, VIC/TAS awarded best debut, and Canadian Blues Underground Network #1 smash album, BLOW THESE TRACKS – Live on The Blues Train with special guest Chris WiIson, comes MR BLACK & BLUES second full length album and third release: LONG ROAD HOME.


      MR BLACK & BLUES (aka Michael Pollitt), a prolific solo performer and producer, and the driving force behind this group of heroically talented Melbourne musicians who came together for a fleeting moment to make this record, with an enviable line-up pedigree and a musical style that has been likened to the raw blues of Eric Bibb combined with the irreverent attitude of Tom Waits and Jon Spencer, fused with one of Australia’s finest blues roots voices.

    • MiriamLieberman2

      Friday 29th August

      Miriam Lieberman

      It is with much excitement that Miriam launches her new album ‘Birds of the Moon’ in Bellingen alongside violinist Lara Goodridge and cellist Kate Adams on vocal harmonies and soaring string arrangements.


      The show forms part of a national tour to promote the album. This is going to be a very special night so be sure to book your ticket!



      Miriam has been described as “something of a renaissance woman ……Somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” (Sydney City News).


      Miriam Lieberman is a singer songwriter with a unique perspective. She accompanies her powerful vocals with kora ( 21-stringed African harp) and acoustic guitar, performing as a soloist and with her trio: Kate Adams (Cellist) and Lara Goodridge (Violinist). Despite this unusual mix of pure classical instruments and something made from a large gourd strung with fishing line there is a musical chemistry between these players and their instruments that melds into a soaringly beautiful soundscape.


      Miriam’s music blends well-crafted songs with powerful and emotive performance. Her unique musical style has developed out of long periods of time spent immersed in the distant places and cultures of the music that inspires her and most of all out of a passion for song writing and performance.

      Julia Henning

      “Backed by a band of talented musicians, award-winning songstress Julia Henning is set to take the Australian music industry by storm. Effortlessly teaming contemporary folk and post-rock, it’s of no surprise that the South Australian local has topped the Triple J Unearthed Charts, and been featured alongside the likes of The Black Keys on Channel 10’s ‘Offspring’.” -GC Mag

      Julia is an up-coming original artist to lock your eyes and ears on. Born with a rare and fatal lung condition, Julia was not expected to live past childhood. Now at 23, she is taking advantage of the extra time she was given by creating a name for herself in the music world as a heartfelt songwriter and powerful singer.
      Julia’s performances are “completely captivating” – broadwayworld.com
      “Her music and voice have a haunting lyrical affect that stays with you long after the show is over” – Weekend Notes.
