A fugitive who escaped from an Indonesian jail has celebrated his 50 days on the run by taunting police on Facebook.

Shaun Davidson and three other inmates are believed to have used a fork and a bucket to burrow a tunnel underneath walls at Bali's Kerobokan jail, which they used to crawl to freedom on 19 June.

In a series of Facebook posts since his escape, Australian convict Davidson has ridiculed police efforts to capture him - mocking up wanted posters and sharing images of his location.

Celebrating his freedom on Monday, the 33-year-old posted: "50 days tomorrow can I get a round of applause".

Days earlier Davidson posted a photo of seats on a plane, with the caption: "Another day another country and check out my leg room hahaha enjoy life".

Last week he taunted Interpol with a Facebook message to the agency's Manila branch.

It read: "How's it going, when you say close how close are you really?"

The fugitive, who claims he has travelled to Amsterdam, Dubai and Germany, has amassed an online following with more than 1,000 people joining a Facebook fan page.

The self-styled "real life action movie star" has been described by supporters as a "legend" and "an inspiration".

In one of his most-liked posts, he photoshopped his face onto a poster for TV show Prison Break.

At the time of his escape, Davidson had just 10 weeks left to serve of a year-long jail sentence for forging his identity.

However, he also has an arrest warrant outstanding in Australia after he allegedly skipped the country while awaiting a court appearance.

Two of his fellow escapees were captured at a luxury resort in East Timor two days after the breakout. The other man remains on the run.

The breakout has prompted an increase in searches of cells at Kerobokan prison.

"I pity those who were on shift that time," guard Wayan Mudastra told The West Australian.

"(They are) the ones being questioned the most."
