She came to Melbourne as a bright-eyed exchange student keen for adventure but Aiia Maasarwe's body will leave the country with her mourning family.
The 21-year-old will make her final journey to Israel after her body was released to her family by Victorian authorities.
The Palestinian Arab of Israeli citizenship was released by the coroner on Monday to a funeral director, AAP understands.
Her family has been desperate to see her body released so they can bury her in line with their Muslim faith.
Ms Maasarwe's funeral will take place on Wednesday in Israel.
Her father, Saeed Maasarwe, and sister Ruba Maasarwe - who was on a video call with her sister when she was attacked - travelled to Melbourne after the death last week.
The Victorian government said it has been offering assistance the family through the ordeal.
"As acting premier I wrote to the father (and) I spoke to the Israeli ambassador," Jacinta Allan told reporters on Monday.
"Every support is being provided through the Victorian government, through victim support agencies, through Victoria Police, to support the Maasarwe family through this most difficult of times and we'll continue to provide that support every step of the way."
Prime Minister Scott Morrison also met with Mr Maasarwe at the weekend.
After attending a comedy show in the Melbourne CBD, Ms Maasarwe boarded the route 86 tram last Tuesday night and was attacked on the short walk home from her tram stop in the northern suburb of Bundoora.
Her body was found about 7am the next day near a shopping centre car park.
Her other sister Noor Maasarwe had been watching the news when she realised her sister had been found dead in Melbourne.
"They didn't say for who it was," Ms Maasarwe told Nine News on Sunday from Israel.
"But it matches all the details. It was on the same road. Everything. I was just praying that it's not her. Then I saw the shoes and her phone ... I was sure it was her."
Aspiring rapper Codey Herrmann, 20, appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday charged with Ms Maasarwe's rape and murder.
As is tradition in Islam, Ms Maasarwe will be taken straight to her home where the family will be able to pay their last respects.
At noon on Wednesday, Ms Maasarwe will then be carried to the local mosque where the community will give prayers and blessings.
Finally she will be taken to the family plot in Baqa al Gharbiyye's cemetery, where she will be laid to rest.
