Can you believe that Bindi Irwin is now 21? The little girl who shot to fame as the world’s favourite Wildlife Warrior, following the tragic death of her father Steve, is all grown up – hosting a fun-filled party to mark the occasion at Australia Zoo.


Taking centre stage at the world-famous wildlife attraction that was made a tourism icon by her late father, Bindi – along with her mother Terri, brother Robert and partner Chandler – posted with a giant 21 to celebrate the big day.

There were also plenty of selfies with fans – and both Bindi and Robert proved themselves experts at getting just the right angle as they shot images with visitors around the world.

Bindi says she wishes her late dad could be with her as she celebrates the milestone, with the Crocodile Hunter’s image a strong presence on her big day.

She even accepted a painting of her father from a fan.  

‘What gets to me are those moments when I’d love him to be here to share what we’re doing,’ Bindi recently told Stellar. ‘It could be when my brother is receiving an accolade for his photography, or it might be at the end of the day when we’re having dinner and laughing.

‘I’ll think: “I wish Dad was here for this.” But he’s just not there.’

But family had plenty of support on her big day, with Terri holding centre stage during a press stop amid the celebrations, pointing out how precious time is, as she sees her daughter grow into a woman.

‘My dearest @BindiIrwin, happy 21st birthday. So many memories,’ Terri wrote earlier on Twitter, adding, ‘Your first birthday cake, laughs with your dad, & endless family adventures.’

Longtime love Chandler wrote, ‘Beautiful Bee, I love you so much.

‘You’re my best friend and whole world. I can’t wait to celebrate your birthday ‘at #AustraliaZoo ❤️ Here’s to another year and beyond of life-changing adventures together.’

Happy birthday, Bindi.
