A Contour or Detail survey, otherwise known as a topographic survey is generally carried out before the design of a new development. Development applications on vacant lots of land and established properties seeking an extension or granny flat for example will need a detail survey for the design to be lodged to council.

Topographic plans show buildings and other structures, spot levels and contours to Australian Height Datum, location of trees, driveways, fences and retaining walls, drainage, sewer and other services including pipe invert levels, kerb heights, floor and ridge heights, fire hydrants, any other visible features on the site as well as the location of adjoining buildings.
