The Steve Irwin Gala Dinner celebrates everything the original Wildlife Warrior was most passionate about –
Family, Conservation and Fun
On November 11, we invite you to join Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin for the annual event in Brisbane. Guests are treated to a scrumptious three-course dinner and a night of wild fun and dancing with roving animals, entertainers, guest speakers and a live auction. In a khaki-decked ballroom, surrounded by fellow Wildlife Warriors, it’s a remarkable night honouring one extraordinary man.
Be part of our Wildlife Warriors family as we follow Steve’s legacy.
Rove McManus started out as a stand-up comedian and has gone on to become Australia’s most successful talk show host and one of its biggest producers of entertainment television.
Rove got his first TV gig on community television before he hit the prime time schedule in 2000 with Rove Live. The show hosted some of the planet’s biggest names with the likes of Cameron Diaz, John Travolta, Drew Barrymore, Matt Damon, The Duchess of York and U2 taking time out to chat with Rove.

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF CONSERVATION
In Australia, it provides lifesaving treatment to wildlife impacted by road traffic accidents and domestic animals attacks. Overseas, it provides more boots-on-the-ground to combat poaching and the illegal wildlife trade, as well as empowers local communities to join our fight for some of the world’s most vulnerable species.
