After her crowd-pleasing win of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” Bindi Irwin was in a hurry to get back to her normal life.

The daughter of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin flew back to her native Australia Wednesday, mere hours after her reality show victory.

While she will most certainly return for the annual “Dancing With the Stars” national dance tour, which kicks off Dec. 15, the new star apparently has no other projects in the pipeline — at least for now.

Irwin was crowned the winner of “Dancing With the Stars” Season 21 on Tuesday.

She beat out former Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter and U.S. Army Ranger Alek Skarlatos for the Mirrorball Trophy on ABC’s two-hour finale, which was filmed live at The Grove in Los Angeles.

Should she decide to further pursue a career in entertainment following her “Dancing” bump, she should find the transition easy, as she’s already a veteran of several films and series at her young age of 17.

At the age of 8, she starred on her how animal reality series, “Bindi the Jungle Girl,” in Australia. She then went on to act in two films, “Free Willy: Escape from Pirate’s Cove” and the sequel to “Nim’s Island,” taking over the titular role from Abigail Breslin.

Irwin also wouldn’t be the first to leverage a “Dancing” bump to sustained success in the future.

Kim Kardashian, Jennie Garth, Lisa Rinna and Candace Cameron Bure and more have all found renewed success after appearing on “Dancing With the Stars.”
