AUSTRALIA Zoo has welcomed a new little cutie, who arrived into the world weighing 60kg and standing two metres tall.

The baby female giraffe and her mum Rosie, who has been at the zoo since 2009, are doing well after the birth on Tuesday this week.

"She is too cute for words," Bindi Irwin said.

"Mother Rosie is doing a great job with her new baby.

"Both little one and mum are happy and healthy.

"This gorgeous girl is certainly going to melt a lot of hearts with her big brown eyes."
