Those already there are being told to stay in their hotels, for fear of further attacks. It's becoming all too familiar. The nation's leaders offering condolences

to those who've lost loved ones in the terror attack and condemning those responsible. I call it wicked, I call it cowardly, I call it evil. We just condemn utterly this vicious evil act. Health Minister Tony Abbott happened to be in Bali on holidays, and has spent the day visiting the injured in hospital. Some of them have got very serious injuries. The Government is organising to have them medivaced out of here as soon as possible.

The Government says it's clear the bombers were targeting Westerners

and are trying to undermine Indonesia's economy and moderate government.

The PM is adamant the blasts were a surprise. I have been told there was absolutely no specific warning of this particular attack. Foreign Affairs staff have been deluged with calls from worried families. Travel advisories now warn Australians to defer all non-essential travel to Bali and Indonesia. And, those already there should take extreme care. Just because these bombs have gone off, doesn't mean there's won't be any further bombings. 25 Australian Federal Police, who led the forensic investigation after the original Bali bombings three years ago, have once again been dispatched to the tourist island. Particularly in the area of the bomb data analysis

to identify the type of explosive that's been used. Federal Police say more officers are on stand by to go to Bali if and when the Indonesians ask for more help. But, like the original Bali bombings, the AFP is hopeful of an early breakthrough. They say the bomb scenes are small and there appears to be substantial forensic evidence. The Opposition says it's clear we're not on top of terrorism, but local police say the small size of these bombs shows terror groups can no longer get access to large volumes of explosives. We are all determined to not let the terrorists win. Laurel Irving, Ten News. The Department of Foreign Affairs has set up an information hotline for anyone worried about family or friends in Bali. And we will have more on the Bali bombings shortly. Aussie tourists fleeing the island tell of their terror.

People with glass in their face and with blood all over them. There was a bit of panic, it was very frightening. And survivors of the 2002 blasts speak out. I just really hope that Australians keep going - show these bastards we are not scared of them. SONG: # How will you feel when it happens? # How will you feel if it's you # When the big red ball comes rolling in # To make your dreams come true?

# You'll be throwing Lotto parties... # (Hoots and clucks) # You'll be having Lotto fun # You'll have lots of Lotto money if you win the big one # 'Cause it's the big red ball that makes dreams come true... # (Both laugh) # The big red ball # That makes dreams come true. # The first Australians to fly out of Bali after the bombings have been welcomed home into the arms of anxious families. But despite this latest terrorist strike, many are determined to return to Bali for future holidays. For those loved ones in Bali, the wait was hell. I didn't know whether they were going to walk down here or not, they couldn't tell me. Tamara's mum had been just near the blasts. You just don't get the relief until you actually see them. I don't want her to go back again. These were the first Australians home, they left just after the attacks. We heard a couple of big bangs, we thought it was thunder. Found out later about two or three bombs went off. I was actually in the place where one bomb went off about three hours before doing some shopping, so pretty scary. I'm a bit stressed out, just so great to have him back. Many will be haunted by what they saw. People with glass in their face and blood all over them and bit of panic, so it was very frightening. Horrific scenes, bodies just laying on the floor, in blankets and blood just everywhere. Yet Bali faithfuls are already pledging to return. Oh absolutely, absolutely, the Balinese deserve it. Passengers with booked holidays checked in alongside medics flying out to assess the disaster. Some changed plans. Unbelievable I didn't think it could happen again. Many though stood defiant. Certainly we'll keep going to Bali otherwise the terrorists win. Yeah, bugger them. I'm going on a holiday. Some had no idea there'd even been a bombing. You turned up, had no, no idea?

Just woken up really. Your instict now you do know? Confusion quickly turned to anger over limited information. We've got no information, don't know what's going on at all, no-one seems to know anything. Jacinta Hocking, Ten News. The attacks come just 10 days before the third anniversary of the first Bali bombings. Survivors of the 2002 blasts fear

the Balinese won't recover from this latest act of terror. The scars from the 2002 blasts which killed 202 people,

including 88 Australians, will never heal. This latest attack has simply reopened the wounds. First initial thoughts were, um, it's happening all over again. The horror returning for Ben Tullipan who is still learning to live without his legs. It angers me that they've done this again. What sort of people are they? Adelaide magistrate Brian Deegan, whose son Joshua was among those killed, is not surprised by the attack, blaming Australia's involvement in Iraq. He believes an attack is now imminent on Australian soil. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this has been planned for some time, and Australians are now being targeted, wherever they may be.

Many Australians were heading to Bali this week to mark the anniversary, including footballer Jason McCartney. He's now cancelled his plans and turned his mother around from the airport this morning as she prepared to board her flight. She then advised others to do the same. Jason and that had been on the Internet and spoken to different people that are living over there and they advised not to go, and that they're smaller bombs now that they're making and putting anywhere - not the big ones. Other survivors fear terrorism will win if Bali is avoided. I would still go, because I do love the people, and I feel sorry for them having to suffer. People might pack up today and all of those people are going to have no jobs as of this afternoon, so it's hard. I'm just really hoping that Australians keep going, showing these bastards that we're not scared of them. Kellie Morgan, Ten News.

Australia's Islamic community has condemned the bombings.

Top Muslim representatives say they're horrified by the attacks. The Islamic council is hopeful there won't be a major backlash against their community. We should not allow the terrorists to win. We should maintain our unity in the face of the new challenge and work together again. But leaders are warning against the use of new terror legislation to target specific groups. The rest of the day's news is next. You'll find everything to tackle your project in the Bunnings Warehouse spring catalogue. a sharp $96. 100-litre poly tray wheelbarrow, just $49.94. If you happen to find a cheaper price on a stocked item, are just the beginning. Just repeating the number the Department of Foreign Affairs has set up for information on friends or relatives caught up in the Bali bombings: Police have seized several weapons after a Sydney siege. The Sydney Swans are still flying high a week after their AFL grand final victory. Their Victorian supporters, led by legend Bobby Skilton, used a cherry picker to hoist the flag at the club's original home - Lakeside oval. The machine brought in to avoid restrictions by the tenants, the South Melbourne soccer club. It forced the Swans away from the South Melbourne ground for victory celebrations by trying to charge the club $20,000 to use the facilities. A rare sight in Townsville today - a jumbo jet flew into town to carry hundreds of screaming Cowboy fans to tonight's rugby league Grand Final. Their team is playing in enemy territory and the Cowboys supporters have answered their call. Cowboys! Thousands of fans boarding the first jumbo to leave Townsville in 10 years, here to take home the NRL Premiership. The in-flight movie replaced with last week's semifinal win.

There was a lot of screaming when we scored the tries again so it's all good.

And they're here for a party. Bit of quiet time then we're going to the pub to celebrate and then even more celebrating tonight. The pressure has been building all week and we're just looking forward to getting the game on. Bring on the Tigers. But Wests Tigers fans are ready with their own welcome. They're already in serious

They're already in serious Grand Final mode. We haven't seen any Cowboys fans and we don't want to see them. I feel sorry for you but not today. Today's the Tigers! The Tigers were written off at the start of the year, given little chance of making the finals. But tonight the prize could be theirs. Extremely excited. It's been a long time coming, this Grand Final, for us. If you missed out on Grand Final tickets, this is the next best thing. Thousand of fans are cramming into live sites across Tigers territory to watch the big game. We're hoping for a big crowd here at Leichhardt Oval and hoping that we can get the Tigers home as well. And now it's the anxious wait to kick-off. Excited, nervous. Ready to rock and roll. I don't know about confident but we're in there, that's the main thing. Tony Peters, Ten News.
