"Thinking about home today. Father's Day is today in Australia and everyone is celebrating at Australia Zoo," Bindi, 17, Instagrammed to her 490,000 followers. "It's such a special time of year, I hope everyone who comes to the zoo today is able to enjoy it with our gorgeous animals. No matter where I am in the world, this day means such a lot to me. My heart forever lives @AustraliaZoo -- just like Dad's always did."
Bindi is in the states training with pro partner Derek Hough for her DWTS debut on Sept. 14. ET went behind-the-scenes with the dancing couple, where the Crocodile Hunter's daughter admitted this will be her first time wearing heels.
"They said, 'We're going to put you in these heels,' and I don't think they realized that I had never worn heels before so I stood up and instantly fell down," Bindi said. "Yeah, it was a good start to a great adventure."
