You just open google.com.au The results will not be identical, because they take the IP address into account (guessing a bit, but it looks that way).

It looks that way indeed (quote from adwords (https://adwords.google.com/select/faq/account.html) :
How does Google determine a searcher's location?
Location targeting is based on the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the searcher. This technique allows us to determine the searcher's country with close to 99% accuracy.
99%.. with all the proxies and other technical difficulties.. Hummm..

You will still get reasonable results if you use the local search engines. I do it as well that way. Google.de gives different results to google.at.
