Steve "The Crocodile Hunter" Irwin will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame more than a decade after his shock death.
The ceremony will take place on Hollywood Boulevard on Thursday (Friday 4.30am AEST) and Irwin's wife Terri, daughter Bindi and son Bob are expected to attend.
Irwin's best mate and director of Australia Zoo and Wildlife Warriors, Wes Mannion, will co-emcee the ceremony.
Irwin was hugely popular in the US, with his Crocodile Hunter shows airing multiple times a day on the Animal Planet cable TV channel.
Irwin, 44, died on September 4, 2006, while filming on the Great Barrier Reef near Port Douglas when a stingray struck him with a barb to the heart.
On May 5 in Beverly Hills wildlife warriors from around the world will attend the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner to celebrate his life and legacy.
