You need to discuss this with your lawyer who can arrange this. You can ask the police to confirm the new address is OK first, just to speed up the process, but then your lawyer will need to change the bail at the court. It can be done quickly if the police accept the new address. If you don't have a lawyer it will be necessary to still confirm the address with the police, and you would then need to go to the court and ask them to change the bail address. The court registrar should be able to help do this.
