    I think your co-ordinates are near the town of Southern Cross on the Great Eastern Highway :-

    https://epsg.io/map#srs=28350&x=728369.743&y=6529990.350&z=9&layer=streets

    The link above has a Transform option, so if you enter

    EPSG:28350 GDA94 / MGA zone 50
    E728369.743
    N6529990.35

    It converts to :-

    EPSG:4326 WGS 84
    S31.3421245
    E119.4004562

    The Postion Format screen on your GPS will have 3 parts to it, they are Position Format, Map Datum and Map Spheroid, GDA 94 and WGS84 are under the Map Datum option, however I havent found a way of entering the GDA94 figures yet so at present I would have to usr the Transform option above
