' Another ex-colleague who no longer works at the restaurant said he recalled Gurung being 'infatuated' with Ms Blake and 'constantly talking about her' even after she left to go fruit picking interstate.
The British woman's body was reportedly riddled with injuries, including wounds to her head, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Ms Blake is believed to have made plans to move overseas in the lead up to her death.
NSW Police Inspector Chad Deegenaars said the tragedy was being treated as a murder-suicide, but post-mortem results would confirm the causes of death.
Ms Blake is believed to have been in Australia for eight months before she was found dead.
Her best friend, Rhys James Collington, said Ms Blake died while 'living the dream travelling round Australia'. Another friend, Ellie Mackness, remembered Ms Blake for her infectious smile and down-to-earth attitude.'She was the most warm-hearted, bubbly, loving and down to earth woman I knew,' she wrote.
