(via Blue’s News)

After turning down the government’s offer for a state funeral, Steve Irwin’s family held a low-key funeral for the Crocodile Hunter over the week-end in Queensland, Australia.

Family and friends of the man known as the Crocodile Hunter reportedly joined the low-key ceremony in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.

It is believed that afterwards Mr Irwin was to be buried at Australia Zoo, the Queensland zoo dedicated to Australian fauna owned by Mr Irwin’s family.

Details of the funeral service are expected to be made public on Monday.
