    Bindi Irwin was ready to go wild at her birthday bash this year—literally.

    The late Steve Irwin's precocious daughter, who turned 15 on July 24, celebrated a day early with a big blowout at the Australia Zoo in Queensland.

    And what a blowout it was: The birthday gal rubbed elbows with a bevy of creatures—both real and of the mascot variety—in a party inspired by Return to Nim's Island.

    The budding star, who was joined by mom Terri and 9-year-old brother Robert, did a demo with crocodiles and cozied up to koalas.

    And for her big birthday moment, she cut into a massive cake shaped like the zoo as perky mascots flanked her.

    It seems like the gal was just a wee tyke when we met her all those years ago on her beloved pop's hit series Crocodile Hunter, and now she's all grown up.

    And her 15th birthday was clearly one she won't readily forget: Bindi later took to Twitter to share her giddiness.

    "So excited to be 15 today. I'm feeling blessed to be spending my birthday with my wonderful friends and family," she wrote, tweeting a photo from the bash.

    She even fielded birthday greetings from some famous pals. Russell Crowe sent Bindi his birthday wishes on Twitter, to which she responded: "Thank you so much! Having the most brilliant 15th birthday."

    Sounds like the zoo-themed shindig was a roaring success!
