Apparently pastor terry Jones has retracted his statement now and says the burning is only postponed because he was lied to!

Under the federal "Hate speech law" in Australia would this Guy be prosecuted for burning the Quran?

No, the Racial Discrimination Act of 1975 only cover race, colour, or national or ethnic origin, and only then in public. However state laws may apply.
