When completing a speedtest or just pinging a server in CMD I average 100+ ping (I live in remote north-west Australia - just moved here.) I can ping into Perth (closest major server other than Geraldton where latency is even higher although it is closer) and receive roughly 125 ms latency. A relative who lives one suburb away which is less than 2km's away from me but also roughly the same distance from the exchange gets 50-70 ms when pinging to servers in Perth. Would this be a line problem or something I should contact my ISP about? I don't believe my router is causing the issue.

Both of you try a traceroute(tracert) to where ever your pinging and compare them. Different ISP typically use different peers to connect to the internet, which takes different routes, which is probably the different in latency your seeing. If you want though, post your tracert for review to see if there are any obvious latency spikes. See link below on how to use tracert.
