The sweet tributes come after Robert and Bindi’s mother Terri Irwin recalled meeting their father, her late husband Steve Irwin, during an interview at a Brisbane auditorium on Wednesday night. 

Terri, 57, who hails from Oregon in the United States, had been visiting Australia when she was just 27 when she first laid eyes on The Crocodile Hunter.

Terri travelled through Beerwah, a rural town in Queensland, and came across the Beerwah Reptile and Fauna Park, now known as Australia Zoo. 

‘I was very impressed with the humility and love that he had for the animals,’ Terri  said during a live interview with The Courier Mail on Wednesday.    

‘Incredibly short shorts, a big hat, and a big mullet, and he was so enthusiastic.’
