The actual Australian Transport Safety Bureau report

The main take-away:

When manually entering the coordinates of the aircraft's position using a data entry technique that was not recommended by the aircraft manufacturer, the longitude was incorrectly entered as 01519.8 east instead of 15109.8 east. This resulted in a positional error in excess of 11,000 km, which adversely affected the aircraft's navigation systems and some alerting systems.
