Early Life Of Bindi Irwin
Bindi Sue Irwin was born in the Queensland town of Buderim. Her first name is derived from the name of her father's favorite female crocodile at Australia Zoo, and her middle name, Sue, is derived from the family's late dog Sui, who died of cancer in her sleep on June 23, 2004, at the age of 15. Bindi is a Nyungar term that means “young girl.”
Irwin first appeared on television at the age of two. She was frequent on her father's television series, notably The Crocodile Hunter Diaries, and she was a credited cast member in the 2002 film The Wiggles: Wiggly Safari. She has English, Irish, and Swedish ancestors, with a heavy Irish influence on her father's side.
In an interview with the Brisbane Times, Irwin remarked about his dual citizenship (Australian-American): “What's great is being a dual citizen both here and in the US, so I guess I get to vote there as well.”
Bindi was eight years old when her father was murdered by a stingray barb while filming an underwater documentary. On September 20, 2006, Irwin received a standing ovation after delivering a eulogy for her father in front of 5,000 people and a worldwide televised audience of more than 300 million viewers.
Her speech got 43 percent of the votes in the 2006 TV Week readers' poll and was named the television moment of the year. Her mother indicated that Irwin had written the speech except for typing assistance.
