In contrast to published article stating that Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin were planning to relocate to America, Australia Zoo has confirmed the article to be ‘completely untrue’.

Speaking with the Daily Mail Australia, a spokesperson for the wildlife sanctuary said there is ‘absolutely no truth’ to reports claiming the family were moving overseas.

‘The Irwin family live at Australia Zoo. They always have and they are not planning to move anywhere,’ the spokesperson said.

An article appearing in the New Idea magazine reported that the family were set to move to America after Terri had found love with a ‘controversial’ American mystery man.

A further article appearing in the Woman’s Day alleged that Terri, 51, Bindi 17, and Robert, 12 were commercially expanding the Irwan brand by opening an Australian Zoo and resort in Las Vagas.

The spokesperson for Australia Zoo denied all of these claims.

‘This seems to have literally come out of thin air. There is absolutely no truth to that claim,’ they said.

In 2010, Terri said she and her kids were determined to spread her deceased husband Steve’s message of conservation beyond their Australian backyard.  She hoped to make Steve’s dream a reality and establish a global empire.

The Irwin family matriarch has dedicated her life to continuing Steve’s work, as she continues to spread the word about wildlife conservation and running Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast.

Terri’s husband and father to Bindi and Bob, Steve Irwin, was internationally known and referred to as The Crocodile Hunter.

He was involved in conservation efforts and died in 2006 after being stung in the chest by a stingray while diving on the Great Barrier Reef.

  • Speculation sells many magazines. Australia zoo sounds wonderful.


  • There is no mention of another guy in the article.
    The family has been spending a fair bit of time in USA because Bindi was appearing in Dancing With The Stars. Some time ago I think there was a mention of a boy being linked Bindi. Not Terri. Supposedly Terri has told Zoo Sky Media Pty. Limited that they wanted to take a step back from, the media. They in turn allege that Terri breached the contract because she allowed Bindi to appear on Dancing With The Stars. Only time will tell what decision Terri and the children will make.
    It wouldn’t be the first time that the media has misled the public.


  • We all know that certain publications Akers things up.


  • I visited Australia Zoo some years ago and the place was splendid. They are doing such a wonderful job! It’s fantastic that they want to open another zoo in Las Vegas. It’s a great way to remember Steve Irwin. I used to follow his program and I found him such a wonderful person and parent too. It’s a pity he died so young. He left a wonderful family behind. I wish them all the best!


  • Like it


  • There is nothing wrong with wanting happiness xx


  • We went to australia zoo earlier this year, it was an amazing zoo, but i was under impressio that the irwins actually were part of the show in the central area with the birds and crocs, so was pretty disappointed to not see them. I hope that they do stay at australia zoo, but maybe make more appearances there, thats part of the reason people go there in the hopes to see them doing what they are known for doing.


  • I really like the Irwins and think Steve would be proud.
