“You are flying back to the USA today,” the daughter of the the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, wrote. “Dropping you off at the airport & waving goodbye, it never gets easier. Thank you for the most wonderful adventures these last few months."

"We even got to celebrate your 20th birthday here in Australia together, hiking through the Great Dividing Range! I've known you since you were 16 and every day, from the very first day I met you, you've been my sunshine. I will see you again soon! Thank you for everything, you always make me smile, no matter how far apart we may be. Have fun while you're away, go find lots of manatees in Florida for me! I miss you so much already. You really do mean the world to me.”

The couple have been in a long-distance relationship since 2013 when they met at Irwin’s family zoo.
