Well, we have similar dial rules in AUS... there is a man page for dialrules and a dialtest program. Set your LD code to 0 and your area code to 1205.
To test use...
/usr/sbin/dialtest -a 1205 -c 44 -i 00 -l 0 /var/spool/hylafax/etc/dialrules...and you get a "ready>" prompt. Try entering a few numbers with +61-3-9874-0115 format...
I spent an interesting half hour trying various combinations, and managing only to get the international code stripped off, until I realized I was using the default dialrules file.
To strip off the local area code from the dialstring you need to use the dialrules.europe file.
