The superstar had a “Camping with the Stars” themed birthday which included a tee pee and campfire cake… and thousands of delighted fans at Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast.

She was joined by her mother Terri, brother Robert and boyfriend Chandler Powell.

Bindi also used the occasion to share a touching tribute to her family on Instagram, thanking them for their love and support.

“Today marks 18 years of life for me, here in Australia and I really don't know where to begin in thanking so many people for an unforgettable journey so far,” she wrote.

She went on to talk about her dad, Steve passing away and how since then, "one life ingredient has remained, unchanged, unbreakable".

“That is the unconditional love that is shared between my beautiful little family and the loyalty we have to each other and everyone else who has taken this journey with us.

“I don't think that when this photo was taken even my beautiful parents could have known what life would evolve. I know that I am endlessly grateful for the love and light I have been given since Day 1 of my life.”

She also shared another post, taking about “embarking upon my adult years.”

“I can't predict what life will have in store for me. All I know is that I will try my very best to make a difference in this world with each moment that I'm given.”
