The convicted drug mule Renae Lawrence has opened up about the mixed emotions she has about going back to Australia when she gets her first contact with freedom after 13 years.

Balinese member Nine, 41, has been behind bars in Bali since she was convicted of drug trafficking in 2005 for trafficking 2.7 kg of heroin to Denpasar airport.

Lawrence revealed to News Corp this week that she is "excited" about her possible release from Bangli prison in November.

She said her emotions ranged from "nervous" up to & # 39; happy, sad, and confused & # 39;

Bali buddies Nine members Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan were executed by a firing squad in 2015, while Tan Duc Thanh Nguyen died of cancer earlier this year.

& # 39; And the others? I will only be free. The others are not free, "Lawrence told News Corp.

She hopes to work when she returns to Australia, but believes that it may not be easy to find an employer who faces a former prisoner.

"In Australia, it's difficult because we already have prisoner status," Lawrence told News Corp.

& # 39; If the owner of the company is a kind person and can accept us, that person rarely exists & # 39;

She was the only member of Bali Nine who did not receive a life sentence.

She was originally sentenced to 20 years, but her sentence has been gradually reduced through good behavior.

Lawrence could have been released from prison in May but could not make the $ 100,000 payment and opted to remain in jail for another six months.

The former speaker and hospitality worker from Newcastle, who converted to Hinduism, has been making the most of rehabilitation programs while in prison.

He recently showed his traditional dance skills in Bali and teaches classes to other prisoners.
