Crikey, Steve Irwin Finally Honoured With Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame
It's been over a decade since the passing of the Crocodile Hunter, but his legacy lives on.
Australia's own Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, was honoured on Thursday with a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Irwin's wife Terri was joined by their children, Bindi and Bob, as well as an array of celebrity guests.
Irwin died just over a decade ago in 2006 when he was only 44 after a stingray's barb pierced him in the heart.
Trying to hold back emotions as she spoke, Bindi Irwin commented on the occasion.
"This is such a special day... Never in my wildest dreams imagined that this would become a reality and this is such an honour as a family to continue on in dad's footsteps".
"Together we will continue to fight for everything that dad worked so hard for."
The Irwins were joined at the ceremony by the likes of Rove McManus, Curtis Stone, Ross Mathews and Beau Bridges, while director of Australia Zoo, Wes Mannion, was the co-master of ceremonies.
It also wouldn't have been a true tribute to Steve's legacy without a slippery or furry friend, so naturally an anaconda joined the first family of conservation on the red carpet for a few photo ops.
The Crocodile Hunter's memory will also be honoured on May 5 with the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner in Beverly Hills. The gala invites guests to celebrate Irwin's mission of educating the world on wildlife conservation.
