'Together forever'

Steve Irwin was one of the world's most renowned conservationists.

On Tuesday, his daughter Bindi Irwin posted an emotional tribute on social media to to her father, 12 years after his death.

"Together forever," she wrote alongside a picture of her family along with her mother Terri Irwin and brother Robert when Steve was still alive.

It was just a few months ago when Steve Irwin received his Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"I'll remember today forever. Such an emotional moment and beautiful chapter in our lives," Bindi later captioned an Instagram photo.

Her speech on the day was a lot tougher to get out.

"We want to make sure everything he lived and died for continues on into the future," the 19-year-old started.

Bindi's composure shook and as she apologised for getting emotional, before lunging to hug her mother who was stood by her side.

"Really, [this is] a culmination of a lot of work from a lot of people who believe that Steve should totally get this recognition," Terri told 7 News.

The Australian icon was tragically taken from the world too soon, killed by stingray's barb off the coast of Port Douglas.

Many remember Steve Irwin, 44, as the fearless Crocodile Hunter, but for wife Terri, he was the love of her life.

"To me, Steve was my Prince Charming. He was my happily ever after. I still feel immense love and loyalty to Steve," the brave mother-of-two previously said of her soulmate.

Bindi and Robert, lost their dad and hero when they were just eight and three.
