I just wanted to give a shout for my sponsor hosts WebSmartCentral
which is an Australian based webhost, with servers in Australia and the US.
I have been extremely happy with their service and the quality/speed of their product. They were extremely supportive when the time came to move my site to them, and the only problems encountered so far have been of my own making (they were still always happy to help!)
They have got SMF on the script installer (I didnt use it as I was moving a site across). For a working TP/SMF example - http://www.techdomain.com.au
Anyway, if you are looking for a good host, especially if you are in Australia, then contact these guys - and let them know that TechDomain sent you!
