A Canberra woman accused of being part of an international drug syndicate busted last month for importing 51 kilograms of cocaine and ice has paid a $100,000 security to be released on bail.

Oradee Thinraha, 27, appeared before the ACT Magistrates Court on four drug importation charges.

Police allege Thinraha was a member of a syndicate responsible for importing 24 kilograms of cocaine and 27kgs of methamphetamine in a tractor and commercial cooking equipment from Canada.

According to the statement of facts, Thinraha allowed the details of her uncles Canberra restaurant to be used as a legitimate front for the illegal activities.

The court heard the charges carry a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

Chief Magistrate Lorraine Walker ordered Thinraha to surrender her passport and report to police twice a week.

She was ordered to deposit $50,000 into the court account and guarantee an extra $50,000.

Thinraha will reappear next month.
