Bindi Irwin has penned an emotional tribute to Steve Irwin.

The 'Dancing With the Stars' star took to Instagram to share the heartwarming message for her father on Australia's Father's Day saying that her ''heart forever lives at the zoo'' like her dad.

The 17-year-old reality star wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of the TV wildlife expert holding a crocodile: ''Thinking about home today. Father's Day is today in Australia and everyone is celebrating at Australia Zoo. It's such a special time of year, I hope everyone who comes to the zoo today is able to enjoy it with our gorgeous animals.''

''No matter where I am in the world, this day means such a lot to me. My heart forever lives @AustraliaZoo--just like Dad's always did .''

Bindi previously said of her father's passing that it makes you realise ''none of us have forever'' and to ''live each day as if it's your last''.

She said: ''After losing Dad, there was the idea that none of us have forever. It really affects you. It makes you want to live each day as if it's your last.''

The blonde beauty has joined dancing competition 'Dancing With the Stars' for their 21st season which airs on ABC on September 14.
