BINDI Irwin has been voted the most popular Australian of the past year by her peers - not actors, singers, TV presenters or even wildlife workers, but other kids.

The country's most famous nine-year-old was presented the top award for fave Aussie at last night's Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, the ceremony famed for the green goo often dumped on celebrities who brave the stage.

Bindi has become a worldwide icon with her Kid Fitness DVD, Bindi The Jungle Girl TV show, her role as an official Australian tourism ambassador and appearances on leading US talk shows after the sudden death of her father Steve Irwin last year.

She also took out another of the night's most significant awards, Biggest Greenie, for carrying on the conservation and animal welfare work of her famous dad with help from her mother Terri Irwin.

While kids lined the orange carpet outside the Sydney Entertainment Centre from this morning, Bindi completed her rehearsals before leaving the complex with her mother and manager and family friend John Stainton, bound for an educational trip to the Sydney Museum.

The orange carpet was packed with celebrities, including award winners and the night's co-hosts, High School Musical star Zac Efron and bubblegum rock group The Veronicas.
