Remembering the Crocodile Hunter on Steve Irwin Day

Bindi Irwin has led the heartfelt tributes.

Every year on November 15th, the Irwin Family come together to honour the late, great, iconic Steve Irwin.

The day is aptly named Steve Irwin Day.

It's been 11 years since the Crocodile Hunter was tragically taken from the world too soon, killed by stingray's barb off the coast of Port Douglas.

Steve's oldest child Bindi Irwin has led the tributes, sharing a gorgeous photo with her and her dad cuddling a wombat.

"He taught me that we must all treat animals the way we wish to be treated. I think that his advice applies to both animals and people. In order to protect our planet, we must first learn to be kind in every part of life," the 19-year-old mused.

His son Bob Irwin mused that Steve was the ultimate role model, "He was the greatest Wildlife Warrior, conservationist and dad on the planet."

Terri took to Twitter to share a hilarious auto-tune song of Steve's best moments (you can listen to it in the player above!).

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.

Terri and Steve's children, Bindi and Robert, lost their dad and hero when they were just eight and three. And now, Steve Irwin Day, his children and wife are taking a moment once again to honour their father.
