Australians travelling to Bali and other parts of Indonesia have been warned to exercise caution after recent bombing attacks in the country.
At least 14 people have died since Sunday in separate bomb attacks on churches and a police station in Surababya, Indonesia’s second largest city.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has issued a travel warning urging Australians to “exercise a high degree of caution in Indonesia, including in Bali, Surabaya and Jakarta, because of the high threat of terrorist attack.”
The holy month of Ramadan begins on Tuesday and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull urged Australians to take the threat of terror very seriously.
“ISIS is still a very, very real threat and I want to say how much we condemn the shocking terrorist attacks in Surabaya,” he told reporters on Tuesday.
However, many travellers remain defiant.
Seven News spoke to several tourists at Perth Airport before they boarded a flight to Bali, who said they would not let terrorists change their holiday plans.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the use of children in the deadly blast at the police station was a horrifying new level of terrorism.
“What was particularly horrific about the attacks over the weekend was the use of children in the terrorist organisation. We have not seen that in Indonesian attacks before and this takes it to a whole new horrifying level,” Ms Bishop told Sunrise on Tuesday.
