Unable to access Australian web site

I have been unable to access a web site in Australia via Comcast's network:

http://members.iinet.net.au/~ianmav/

I have no trouble reaching other sites, and I have verified with other Comcast customers in PA and NJ that they are also unable to reach the site.  A traceroute to members.iinet.net.au hangs after the 4th hop:traceroute to members.iinet.net.au (203.0.178.90), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

I tried chatting with online support, who persisted in blaming my computer.  Anyone who knows networking would recognize this as a ROUTING issue.  Can someone please address this?

Additional info.  I telnetted to the route server in NY, which was also unable to reach the site:

 

route-server.newyork.ny.ibone>traceroute members.iinet.net.au
Translating "members.iinet.net.au"...domain server (68.87.64.164) (68.87.66.164)

Type escape sequence to abort.
Tracing the route to members.iinet.net.au (203.0.178.90)
