latency issues

Going by your trace route, the server is both far away (Virginia, US) and requires a lot of hops to reach it.


Your ISP's latency appears to be fine going by the first few hops.  The two largest latency issues are between hop 10 & 11 (Sydney to Los Angeles) and 12 to 19 (West to East US, i.e. Los Angeles to Washington DC). 


See if they offer a server much closer to you, in Australia if possible.  If the people you are playing with are located outside of Australia, try using a server somewhere centralised between you and them, such as in Europe if they are in European countries.  Even if they are in the US, try choosing a server towards the south west of the US.  This will reduce the latency by about 50ms and the number of hops, i.e. hops 11-19.
