    Changing browser location, you mean as in you are currently in the UK, but want to access Australian only websites? If so, you will need to use a VPN service, such as VPN express (you pay for the service).

    Or are you referring to certain websites, such as google always reverting back to google.co.uk instead of their Australian counterpart? In this case, you could go to Settings->Safari and clear the Cache&Cookies.

    Odd, that bit in google is based on your network and IP address so unless you're connecting through a VPN routed somewhere else it should pick up on the fact you're in Australia.

    You can always go to http://www.google.com.au/ncr ncr standing for no country reconnect, so it will force it to go to the australian website.

    Anyway, have you cleared the cookies, as was suggested before?

    I battled with this but found out how.

    Settings
    General
    International
    Regional format
    Change to the country of your choice. Job done!
