The Steve Irwin Gala Dinner celebrates the life and legacy of the original Wildlife Warrior - Steve Irwin.

Steve had a vision for conservation where people and wildlife could live harmoniously alongside one another.

This November 26, we will be honoring the greatest Wildlife Warrior that ever lived, and we invite you to join us at the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner in Brisbane!

Come up close to our incredible wildlife as our khaki crew roam the room, and join us as we tell the world about the importance of protecting our wildlife and wild places.

Today, Steve’s legacy lives on through the support of people like you!
