I think it's possible. Last time when I contacted CommBank, they provided me with the following information.

Hi

Incase you have difficulty opening an account when you are still in india. ask the indian bank where you have an account to issue you an international ATM card and you can use this any where abroad and you can withdraw daily 20000rs or its equivalent in aus dollars and also take a credit card from india so you can take care of your expenses until your aussie account is opened..

these are some of my suggestions you can look at alternatives and
if you have any also let me know.

Hi, we've opened an account with National Bank of Australia. They sent us a letter with details of our account numbers etc. All that we've had to do was let them know when and where we'll be arriving in OZ so that they can arrange an appointment with the bank manager who will have our bank cards, cheque book etc ready for us. We just need to take our passport as ID. Very simple to open and we've got an appt booked a few days after we land. Very helpful in their emails. Best of luck
