    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!

  1. Live@No.5

    Beneath the mountains by the sea, the magical Bellinger valley rolls just off the beaten track between Sydney & Brisbane, approximately 4hrs north of Newcastle and 3hrs south of Byron making it the perfect stop off for artists travelling along the old east coast tour trail.

    No.5 has established a strong reputation for hosting intimate live performances, with the likes of Mama Kin, Joe Robinson, Jack Carty, Jordie Lane, Deborah Connway, Perch Creek Family Jug band & The Mid North all playing memorable sell out shows.

      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.

      Saturday 13th September

      Katie Noonan

      4 x ARIA award winner Katie Noonan’s technical mastery and pure voice make her one of Australia’s most versatile and beloved vocalists.

      ‘Songbook’ will see Katie exploring material from throughout her career including songs from George, Katie Noonan and the Captains, Elixir and her acclaimed solo album. This intimate solo performance mode is the perfect setting for Katie to revisit her most popular songs.

      In 2013 The Herald Sun announced Katie one of the 20 greatest Australian singers of all time as voted by her peers. Don’t miss this chance to see why.

      According to Katie, Songbook explores “the last 15 years of my life. It has been really interesting going through these works and seeing my evolution as a musician; my journey from a girl to a young woman to a wife and mother.”

      In Songbook, Katie revisits moments that speak less about her career and more about her life and loves. ‘Spawn’ was written by “a 19-year-old girl facing the world and confronting the loss of innocence”; elsewhere, ‘Special Ones’ speaks of “self-respect and empowerment” while ‘Love’s My Song For You’ is a tribute to “then boyfriend, now husband and soul mate Zac,” father of Katie’s sons.

      The Songbook tour will show Katie at her most personal and sublime, with each song’s origin and inspiration explored onstage. Fans will delve deeper into the songs they know and understand the background stories that accompany the material.

    • Maia-Jelavic

      Thursday 18th September

      Maia Jelavic

      Maia Jelavic falls somewhere within the wide world of folk music, a songwriter whose unique and intelligent lyrics leave you feeling breathless and amazed. Her songs are stories, full of colour and charm, enthralling the listener with lyrics that strike a chord in memories forgotten and treasured. Maia’s tunes revolve around a lot of arpeggio finger-picking goodness, and while the acoustic guitar is her instrument of choice she is regularly tempted to break out both the banjo and ukulele. Writing all of her own music and lyrics, Maia has recently recorded her debut EP, “The Less I See” which comprises 5 tracks and was released in September 2013.
