This page is dedicated to the larger than life local boy from Beerwah, Steve Irwin.
I didn't know Steve personally but like most locals we adopted Australia Zoo (aka Steve's Place) as our own.
Would you like to share it with everyone?
Thursday 15th of November was Steve Irwin Day, a day to celebrate the extraordinary life of the "crocodile hunter" and everything he stood for.
Love him or not I don't think you could ever describe him as lazy. His child like enthusiasm was infectious and he wore his passion for wildlife and family like a badge. Great Human Being.
Steve was born on February 2nd 1962, and he died on the 4th of September 2006.
I remember that day, I was in Beerwah and simply couldn't believe what I was hearing on the radio although most people expected to hear this news one day.
