‘Robert Irwin’s Australia has arrived,’ he wrote alongside a promotional video.

‘This is the embodiment of countless years of dedication to the art form of imagery, as well as my profound passion to continue my father’s important legacy, while forging my own path,’ he added.

Robert said all profits from the book will go towards conservation.

The first 500 editions are signed by the award-winning photographer himself.

The wildlife warrior later spoke about the book on the Today show, describing it as a celebration of Australia.

‘This is a photography book that is a celebration of our country,’ Robert told hosts Karl Stefanovic and Sylvia Jeffreys.

‘The amazing, rugged natural beauty that we have here. And the story that photography plays in conservation.’

Photography is a passion for Robert, with the teenager saying he wanted to capture spectacular images which tell stories about the natural world.
