Go to http://nationalmap.gov.au

Select Add Data (on the left)

Then under Communications, there is a Dataset called Broadband Map. Click the plus sign next to it to add it.

 

Zoom in to your address on the map. This will show you the outline of your Distribution Area. Your Node will be within the area outlined that your address is in.

 

The next step is to go for a walk or drive in that area to find it.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Usually a Green Box on the nature strip. About the size of a large Airconditioner Unit.

Image below shows what a node look like. When working out the distance will have to also measure distance to connecting pillar which could be up to 100 M from the Node in the opposite direction to your house. Below is an image of connecting pillar.
