what you need to do, create one resource group in Australia region

Then go to resource groups in Azure portal, select your current resource group pointing to SEAsia and select all resource and click move and select target Australia resource group

All your resources should get moved there, some downtime will need to be factored depending upon total VMs, there size
May be you can contact Azure support to identify exact downtime requirments

Hi Mahesh, Thanks . But it does not let me move from resource group in MSDN to resource group I have with PAYG
Hi Prabhin,   Thanks.  Is this procedure good enough for just moving ?  How to prevent the replication later ( My thought on replication is it will happen in regular intervals. I may be wrong)

It also appears that he is going from 1 subscription to another as well as changing the region.
