“The victim’s life could not be saved,” Bali police officer AKP Sukadi said.

“The victim suffered lacerations to her left arm and upper left back which is thought to have caused the victim to die,” he said.

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) spokesperson said the government was providing ?consular assistance to the family of an Australian woman who died in Bali.

“We send our deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time,” the spokesperson said.

“Owing to our privacy obligations we cannot provide further comment.”
