Yes, it means smelly.

I didn't realise that it was an Australianism rather than a phrase more widely used.
Most Americans - older Americans - would understand this phrase to mean arriving somewhere on time.

Younger Americans would understand this phrase to mean exactly correct.

Very few of us would use it to describe smelly.
