Sometimes you need to appear to be located in Australia even though you are not. You do this by obtaining an Australian IP-address and I will show you how.

Your current IP-address is one you have inherited from whatever Internet Provider you are using at the moment. This is a unique number that you are automatically awarded when connecting to the Internet. Unfortunately this is also a dead give away of your location.

Use VPN to get an Australian IP-address

The workaround to this problem is actually very simple. By connecting to a Virtual Private Network with a server located in Australia you will inherit an IP-address from the server replacing your current one. As soon as you disconnect you will then get your IP-address back.

This means that you can virtually change your location, as you like on the fly. All you need is a subscription for a VPN service. I personally use Unlocator as you get access to all their servers from all around the world in a very easy to use application. Once you have signed up you simply install the application and select a server in Australia from the list.

How to get an Australian IP address

Once you are connected simply use the website or service as you normally would when located in Australia. In some instances you need to clear the cookies in your browser if the site in question still detects you as being outside Australia.

Anyhow this is all there is to it and as you can see it is pretty simple to obtain and Australian IP-address when you like.
