Sewer Backup (Non-US)

My name is george and I live in NSW, Australia.
My sewer is blocked between the inspection plate and the main sewerage pipes; there is only one metre between the two.
I have dug to about a metre from the main sewer pipe and opened an inspection hole.
Do I have to dig all the way to the main? Or does anybody know how my sewer connects with the main?
For example, does my sewer pipe go all the way to the main and then drop vertically? Or does it go diagonally or any other way down?
Thanking you in advance,

It would be impossible to tell you how your sewer line runs. I would venture to say that the best way to address this problem is to get a drain cleaning machine to remove the obstruction in the drain line, then have someone come in and camera the drain so you know for future reference how the drain configuration is laid out.
