An intense magnitude 7.1 earthquake has been felt by holiday-makers in Indonesia.

The earthquake originated in the Bali Sea about 3.55 local time (5.55am AEST) at a depth of about 515km below the ocean surface.

There is no tsunami threat to Australia, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

Bali tourists took to social media to report waking up early in the morning to the ground moving and buildings shaking.

One said she woke to her “whole villa shaking”, describing it as a “frightening” experience.

“Experienced my first earthquake just now in Bali,” one person posted to X just after 7am (AEST).

“Was woken up at 4 AM by some medium-heavy shaking.”

More to come.
