Bindi Irwin continued to honor her late father's legacy over the Thanksgiving weekend.

The former Dancing With the Stars champ stepped out with her boyfriend, professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell, at the 10th annual Steve Irwin Gala dinner in Brisbane, Australia, where she was joined by her mom, Terri, and her brother, Robert.

Before and during the event, the 18-year-old nature conservationist took over the Wildlife Warriors Instagram page where she shared some pics from the black tie event, and some heartwarming memories of her father.

Before the event even kicked off, Bindi shared a super cute photo of her and Chandler posing with a koala.

"Thrilled that @ChandlerPowell will be joining us tonight at the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner. He is one of our fantastic Wildlife Warrior Global Ambassadors," she shared. "We always love spending time together at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, especially when we get to cuddle gorgeous koala joeys like this little beauty."
