Schapelle Corby's release date is finally known

SCHAPELLE Corby has learned the date on which she'll be able to come back to Australia.

Corby is currently on parole in Indonesia after serving nine years in prison for smuggling marijuana but will the parole board monitoring her sentence has decided March 27, 2017 will be her release date, News Corp reports.

She will most likely be immediately deported from Indonesia once the date arrives. 

The 39-year-old is expected to go back to the Gold Coast where she'll most likely join her sister Mercedes working at her recently-opened bar in Coolangatta, Laneway Dining and Bar.

Mercedes told the Gold Coast Bulletin the bar had become a family business but declined to say how Schapelle might be involved.

"No, we don't really talk about that stuff. We'll wait to see what happens," Mercedes told the Bulletin.

"For now it's just nice to wait and see what happens when it gets closer to her coming home."
