CRIKEY! Robert Irwin is the youngest ever Australian to be honoured with a Madame Tussauds Wax Figure

Robert Irwin

He is only 20, but Robert Irwin is everywhere! From magazine covers to TV hosting, and later this year, his wax figure will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds Sydney – making him the youngest celebrity to join the Sydney attraction!

Commenting on the news that he will be the latest celebrity to be immortalized in wax, Robert said, “Being approached by Madame Tussauds Sydney to receive a wax figure is a huge honour. I’m such a fan of the Madame Tussauds attractions; they’re home to the most influential celebrities in the world, and I’m very proud that I’ll be amongst them!”

A few weeks ago, Robert took part in a Madame Tussauds sitting, where over 100 measurements and 300 reference photos were captured. Robert was joined by his mum, Terri, for the unique experience. Both were fascinated by the methodical process, commenting on how skilled the studio stylists were in matching his skin tone so quickly.

Robert was intrigued to learn how his father’s wax figure was created. Commenting, “Nine years ago, my dad, Steve Irwin, was posthumously honoured with a Madame Tussauds Sydney figure. My mum and the Australia Zoo team got behind the project, supplying information, images, and clothing to allow their studio team to expertly sculpt his figure in tribute to his life and legacy.”

Robert’s figure will be unveiled later this year. Wearing the iconic Australia Zoo khaki set made famous by his father, he will also be poised with a camera – on top of which will be one of his favourite snake species – the woma python (Aspidites ramsayi).

“Robert Irwin is the man of the moment! We are in awe of all he has achieved at such a young age. Being honoured with his very own wax figure is a testament to his enduring legacy and the profound impact he continues to have on our planet. He’s also among the most requested Aussie celebrities by local and international guests. There’s no one like him, and we’re thrilled to add him to the incredible line-up of stars at Madame Tussauds Sydney,” said Richard Dilly, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Sydney.

“Robert was great fun at the sitting! When he first saw the calipers (measuring tool) he instantly compared them to a crocodile!” added Richard.

Today, Tuesday 23 April, fans will be treated to more behind-the-scenes moments from the unique measuring process via the Madame Tussauds social channels.
