Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, strutted the red carpet this week at the AACTA Awards and showed the world that she's all grown up.

Irwin, 15, donned a black and white floral long-sleeved dress, motorcycle boots, and some makeup Thursday in Sydney for the Australian awards ceremony that honors standout films, TV shows, documentaries, and short films.

Irwin had dedicated her life to her father's work by promoting wildlife conservation. Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being speared in the chest by a stingray barb as he was filming ocean shots for his daughters TV show, "Bindi the Jungle Girl."

"With dad, he was the ultimate wildlife warrior and we admired him more than anything," Bindi Irwin told E! News in November. "Dad honestly was incredible. We never got nervous about him with animals, but I do remember he gave me a piece of advice that has stuck with me forever. He said, 'You have to treat animals the way you wish to be treated.' Which is so true. And I think that applies to all animals."

"He was the greatest dad on the planet. He was our inspiration, who we looked up to the most and, for us, we wanna carry on his legacy. We wanna make sure that his message of wildlife and conservation continues, because he was the world's greatest conservationist and so we never want that message to die."
