At the risk of hijacking Campaign Monitor's forum I thought this would be a good place to find like minded people who may have a found a good SMS marketing provider in Australia. I'd love to hear of any recommendations you may have or who to avoid.
If Camapign Monitor is planning such a service let me know too!
We're not planning anything in that area, and we don't really know much about SMS providers I'm afraid. Perhaps someone else does though.
I can't say I know of any Australian providers, but I can vouch for Clickatell. They offer a great (and reasonably priced) service along with some great API's.
I can vouch for Clickatell, great service, great product (and South African!) and the most extensive API connectivity options I have ever seen!
I have integrated their SMS gateway into a number of projects. It's not quite white-label, but if you have a development / coding resource available it may be a solution for you.

This is not white label either but you can have a look at this SMS gateway software: http://www.ozekisms.com
They sell only the software, so you will still need to find a provider. Unfortunately I don't know any in Australia. :(
MessageMedia are fantastic. Have delivered every message without fail in over 4 years of use.
Was using Clickatell before that, but international SMS providers tend to be a bit flaky delivering to Australia. Usually if you're in Australia and the SMS provider is charging you 10c or less, the messages are coming from overseas.
There's not really a margin to be made on this sort of service, but if you're looking for 100% reliability and ease of use with an easy to use API they'd be my pick.
Text messaging technology uses an SMS gateway to hook up any mobile SMS service to an existing instant message service, Word Wide Web, PDA devices, personal computers and to any landline phone. Some devices with Bluetooth devices can connect to a mobile phone similar to a modem sending SMS through wireless networks. SMS have been widely used with either GSM or non GSM systems.

I have come across a few good alternatives, SumoText.com, works quite well but i believe it may only be US/Can. BurstSMS is also good and seems reliable, gBlast SMS Marketing is also good.
The problem I have is that none of the services I have found yet integrate with my other CRM solutions.
