So I got this from Telstra after a Dial Before You Dig enquiry, seems like they are not giving out free plans like everyone else. Are Telstra even relevant if I can get NBN? Please note: Plans will require payment before they are sent. If you are excavating (ground breaking) then you need to submit your DBYD request under a ground breaking activity type (for example - 'mechanical excavation'). The activity types listed above ('Conveyancing' 'Planning and Design' 'Tendering' and 'Subdivision') are considered desktop activities only (not for ground breaking). If you do not wish to receive the information requested for the activity type specified (for which an account is required), then no further action by you is required.
