Deborah Cassrels is The Australian newspaper’s first Bali-based correspondent. She covered events throughout Indonesia for a decade from 2009, from refugees, politics, the Bali Nine drug gang and the executions of their condemned bosses, to shackled people, infamous terrorists, powerful tycoons and lavish royal celebrations. Join her as she reveals a hidden side to Bali and the vast Indonesian archipelago in which all is not as it seems.

Deborah Cassrels adalah koresponden pertama di surat kabar Australia yang berbasis di Bali, yang meliput seluruh peristiwa di Indonesia selama satu dekade dari tahun 2009. Dari komplotan narkoba Bali Nine dan proses eksekusi bos mereka, hingga orang-orang yang disekap, para teroris, konglomerat yang kuat, dan perayaan kerajaan yang mewah, bergabunglah dengannya saat ia mengungkapkan sisi tersembunyi tentang Bali dan kepulauan Indonesia yang luas yang tidak semua terlihat seperti yang dipresepsikan.
