Kendall Jenner celebrated her 17th birthday with a helicopter ride in Australia.

The showbiz prodigy - who last year received a Range Rover for her birthday - was given the special treat by her parents Kris and Bruce Jenner while she is in the country working on a photo shoot for Miss Teen Vogue.

Kendall was even allowed to pick which aircraft she wanted to go in when Kris took her to an airfield on Saturday (03.11.12), the date of her birthday.

She then celebrated by ordering the pilot to take her to some remote locations in the Australian outback.

However, Kendall - who has half siblings Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian and a sister Kylie Jenner - is now on the long journey back to her native Los Angeles from the Southern Hemisphere.

She wrote in a series of posts on twitter: ''bye bye Australia ... the journey home begins! about to be the longest flight of my life. I was a happy girl (sic)''
