I'm in Australia
Even Microsoft has not released an Australian Version yet because it is not that easy to adapt to country regulations & tax laws.

I believe you can change the language and date to American
Go to your Control Panel - Regional and Language Options.
In the Regional Options tab, the Short Date should be what you're seeing in QB most frequently.
 If your regional settings are set up correctly for you, you will see that English (United Kingdom) is selected in the drop-down list in that tab.
If the long and short date formats shown on that tab are not what you want to see in QB, then click on the Customize... button next to the drop-down menu at the top, then click on the Date tab and use the Short and Long Date Format drop-down lists to change them to whatever you like.
Quote for using Quickbooks in different countries
Using QuickBooks outside the United States
This article explains the difference between QuickBooks for use in the United States and customized versions for other countries.
Detailed Instructions
QuickBooks was designed to work with the tax codes and currency of the United States and is supported for US based businesses only; because taxes and currency are an integral part of doing business, we don't recommend using QuickBooks in other countries where tax laws and liabilities are most certainly different.

However, customized versions are available for other countries.
 If you are using QuickBooks UK, QuickBooks Canada, or another QuickBooks international version and you have questions, you must contact support for the applicable country. Please see www.intuit.com/international/ for available versions and contact information for support for these versions.
Good Luck
