Architect designed luxury interpretation of the traditional Australian shed
About Melissa Hendry
I'm a keen traveller and cyclist and have always been a city girl - until I fell in love with the beautiful town of Bright.
Why Melissa Hendry chose Porepunkah
I designed, built and decorated Nine Steps and co-own the property with Rupert. I love spending time at the house and just relaxing while admiring the views, listening to the birds, spotting wildlife, cooking a bbq and enjoying a drink.
What makes this House unique
Watching the ever changing face of Mount Buffalo from the lounge or the grounds of Nine Steps is always special. Spending quiet time relaxing, or the joyous chaos of kids enjoying the giant park that is Nine Steps always makes me happy. Ending the day lying in bed looking up at the stars is simply incredible...

Thanks Cheri! We're so pleased you enjoyed your weekend away!
A beautiful well lit retreat ... only the sound of birds and the river. A huge tub with a view was bliss. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. Wonderfully clean.
Thanks Helen! So pleased to hear you enjoyed your peaceful retreat.
Beautiful property in a tranquil location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was perfect for adults and the little ones.
The house was cosy yet spacious and very well maintained.
Some very minor suggestions:
- a couple more tea towels
- bath mats
- sharper knives
- more chopping boards
Thanks again for having us and thank you for a wonderful stay!!
Thanks Prudence! Glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay and used our big kitchen to cook up a feast.
Tranquil and accomodating.
Great for the kids to have zero screen time. First encounter with a wild snake. Blair witch project style video ensued...priceless!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! With 29 acres of native bushland surrounding Nine Steps to explore, we do have a lot of wildlife - though you are the first guest to see a snake!
