Bindi Irwin’s American wakeboarding boyfriend Chandler Powell will be joining in her 18th birthday celebrations at Australia Zoo next month.

Irwin says she will party with family and the public on July 24 at Australia Zoo in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast where on Monday she announced the name of the wildlife reserve’s 11-week-old Sumatran tiger Reggie.

“I’ll celebrate here and it’s a camping with the stars theme day and Chandler’s going to be here from the States which is great,” the tee-totalling teenager told AAP.

Irwin and Chandler have been an item for more than 18 months.

He will not only celebrate Irwin’s birthday at Australia Zoo but will stay on and accompany the Dancing With The Stars US winner to the family’s wildlife conservation property near St George.

Irwin intends to retreat to the reserve a few days after she turns 18 with Chandler and some of her closest friends.


“My birthday involves everybody,” Irwin said.

“We will head back out there afterwards and relax with the kangaroos and emus, so we are all planning to go out there together.”

Irwin said all children would gain free entry to Australia Zoo on her birthday.
