Dynamic website access in Australia

Hello - i realize the internet is fast, but....

I have a very dynamic website with thousands of links. and by "dynamic" i mean the page may never load the same way twice since its driven by user parameters.

This webpage will be accessed in Australia quite a bit. Is there any advice for handling the geographical distance? I considered just opening up some local ISP account in Oz to deal with it, but I wanted to bounce it off an expert or two !

Cloudflare could help in this case.

that was my first thought as well, but i was under the possibly mistaken impression that cloudflare (and similar services) only worked on webpages that tend to be rather static in nature. doesn't cloudflare take an image of your webpage and store it on a server ?

or is this a question for a cloudflare forum ?

i just learned that services like cloudflare existed only a couple of months ago, so i can say i know absolutely nothing about it, except what i stated above, which might be incorrect !
