Irwin recently shared another special moment with Grace on Instagram. The pair were at the newly-opened Crocodile Hunter Lodge, a luxury accommodation supporting conservation at the Australia Zoo, where the family lives and works.

The photo from the space shows Bindi holding Grace as they stand in front of a wall decorated with Irwin family photos featuring the late Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin, wife Terri, Bindi and her brother, Robert. Grace can be seen reaching out and touching one of the framed pictures.

In May, Irwin told PEOPLE that Grace is fascinated whenever she sees old footage of her late "Grandpa Crocodile."

"We have so many documentaries of Dad, and we're always playing them for Grace," Bindi shared. "It's so fun to watch her study him. I didn't realize how much Dad's passion for life and his animated facial expressions — I mean, they captivate her."

After rising to international fame on his wildlife documentary television series The Crocodile Hunter, Steve was diving with stingrays for an underwater film titled Ocean's Deadliest when he died on Sept. 4, 2006, at age 44. Bindi was just 8 years old.

"I definitely see parts of [Dad] in Grace," says Bindi. "His determination and his inability to sit still. I think that's really special. I'm excited to see as she grows up how her personality will develop. If Dad was around, honestly, we would never see her. He would be in love."
