Steve Irwin: Aussie hero

Steve Irwin, our beloved 'Crocodile Hunter', was born 22 February 1962 in Essendon, Melbourne.

Known for his larger-than-life enthusiasm and vigour for living life to the fullest, Steve grew to become one of Australia's most internationally loved stars.

Tragically, Steve lost his life in 2006 after being attacked by a sting ray. Here, we celebrate Steve's life as a passionate animal lover, Hollywood star and devoted family man.
