Steve Irwin Is Going To Be Honoured With A Hollywood Star

Crocodile Hunter and Aussie legend Steve Irwin is being honoured with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star for his contributions to the entertainment industry.

Irwin, who died in September 2006 after being struck by a stingray, is the only posthumous member of the 2018 television class for his work on wildlife documentaries.

His daughter Bindi tweeted the news on Friday. She wrote: "Beyond excited to share with you all that we have just received news that Dad will be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."


The family also shared a video of her, her brother Robert and their mum Terri reacting to the good news.


Terri can be heard saying: "He's going to Hollywood, guys!"

In a statement from the Australia Zoo conservation site, Terri said: "Steve has always said that he didn't care if anyone remembered him, as long as they remembered his message.

"I truly believe that this recognition for Steve's achievements will ensure that his message of wildlife conservation is remembered."


Irwin's nomination was sponsored by Visit Sunshine Coast.
