Australian Government warned prior to Bali:

"The BBC had access to FBI transcripts of the interrogation of terrorist Mohammed Jubara, who was caught after his foiled attempt to bomb the Australian embassy in Singapore.

Four months before the Bali bombing, he told the FBI that at a meeting in Thailand in January 2002, senior Al Qaeda operative Hambali ordered a campaign of bombings in bars, cafes and nightclubs frequented by Westerners, saying he had one tonne of explosives in Indonesia.

US counter-intelligence agent Pat Damuro confirmed that that information was passed on to Australia...

The Australian Government has repeatedly said it never received specific intelligence about a planned attack on Bali."
