Bindi Irwin has shared a cute snap of herself cuddling up to boyfriend Chandler Powell after spending three weeks together in the US.

Accompanying the black and white picture, Bindi, 17, wrote, "Three weeks of adventure everywhere from LA to the Oregon Coast. I miss your puns and hugs but I'll see you again in a couple months. I hope your trip to Kansas is wonderful.

Chandler revealed they were dating last year, when he shared a picture with Bindi on Instagram for her birthday.

"Happy Birthday to this gorgeous girl! Feel very blessed to have you in my life. Counting down the days until I get to see you again! @bindisueirwin#TotallyGushing #ILoveCamping#ILoveTheOutdoors #ISwamTheCrocPond," he wrote.

The "I swam the croc pond" hashtag is a salute to Bindi's late father, Steve Irwin, who said Bindi's boyfriends must first swim the crocodile pond before they can date his daughter.
