JUNGLE girl Bindi Irwin has hit morning television, giving her first interviews since winning the American Dancing with the Stars last week.
Bindi, along with mum Terri and brother Robert, all arrived back in Australia on Monday night.
Speaking on Nine's Today Show from Beerwah's Australia Zoo, Bindi said she felt like "I've just woken up from this incredible dream".
Australia's favourite daughter beat out aging Backstreet Boy Nick Carter to take the win with dance partner Derek Hough.
Bindi has told what it was like to realise she had won the mirror ball trophy, even if it was a few moments after those watching at home.
"The crowds were screaming so loud and it was a beautiful night, but then they announced our names and I didn't know until I looked over at Derek who started yelling with joy," she said.
"So he said that he was surprised I didn't explode into glitter, I was that happy.
"It was such a wonderful night and, you know, for me to have my family there with me every single step of the way, it meant the most.
"Their support and love is what kept me going. For someone who is known for wildlife conservation and not dancing, it was an unbelievable journey."
Happy birthday to the greatest brother on earth. I can't believe that it was an entire 12 years ago today when I met my little brother for the first time. Since that day he has grown up to be the smartest and most amazing boy on earth. Being a big sister is the greatest job of all. I love you so much, Robert. And I'll be here for you forever.
Bindi said she was back into her usual khaki garb, now that she's back home.
"It feels so good to be back in khaki. I woke up this morning and looked into my closet and instantly grabbed my khakis."
Following her win, Bindi told the Sunshine Coast Daily the size of the platform meant she could take her wildlife conservation message to a wider audience.
"I've always thought that if I was on a show, or in a movie, then I would be able to reach a bigger audience and spark an interest in wildlife conservation.
"People watching Dancing with the Stars may not be a huge fan of David Attenborough, so it gives me a chance to reach people that I otherwise wouldn't have had the opportunity to."
Bindi also spoke to Mark and Caroline on the Sunshine Coast's 92.7 MixFM. Listen below:
Meanwhile, Bindi also addressed the speculation that her mic may have captured her breaking wind during an embrace with Hough in an earlier episode.
After media outlets globally pounced to dish out the headline, 'Windy Bindi', the down-to-earth teen said she was not so bothered by the speculation.
"If a mic could actually pick that kind of thing up, that's an extraordinary mic... But nope, not me," she said.
"But it was kind of funny."
