I am not sure how to deal with this.

Does my above description give any clues?

P.S. I am from Australia, where I understand some attempts have been made to restrict certain material.
Yes, that helps. I do not think that interpol is the interpol I know, the International Criminal Police Organization.
Must be an Australian thing. Sadly some countries block Internet access to specific sites. This might be the case here.

Circumventing is usually possible but depends on the blocking method used. After a quick search it seems to be only DNS blocking.

Means: The Domain Name Server you get from your provider does not give you the correct address for a domain (e.g. imagevenue.com).

This can be circumvented by using a different DNS, like googles public Server 8.8.8.8.

Google for "dns blocking bypass" and you will find detailed explanations what this is about and what to do.
