Bindi, 19, has been dating professional wakeboarder Chandler, 21, since they met in 2013 at her family’s Australia Zoo, and their nuptials are expected to be a huge event.

A source close to the Irwin family told Radar: “Bindi’s mom, Terri, has visions of it being Australia’s version of the royal wedding, and you can bet the Australia Zoo will be the venue! “The ‘Crocoseum’ stadium within the zoo is ideal. It seats roughly 5,000 people, and a beautiful podium could easily be built over the crocodile ponds in the middle.”

Marrying at the zoo would be the perfect tribute to Bindi’s dad, the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin — and her wedding will be both traditional and star-studded, said the insider.

“Bindi’s expected to choose a classic white dress and veil. Terri is hoping a pastor from the Methodist church in Eugene, Ore., where she married Steve, will make the trip,” spilled the source.

Chandler’s grandfather gushed over Bindi — who tangoed her way into American’s hearts when she won Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars with pro partner Derek Hough. “When Bindi is talking to you, she keeps the conversation as much about you as it is about her. She’s not at all self-centered,” said John.

“I think he’s more than willing for somebody else to have the spotlight. That way they can share the experience. There are no egos getting in the way," the proud grandpa gushed to Radar.
