Remain east of the road and follow the route as shown on your VTC. Just past the 10nm control zone step, look out for the checkpoint of Ewaninga on the other (western) side of the road.

From here, follow VFR Route 5 over a stretch of fairly featureless terrain until you come to the next set of ranges, the James Ranges. Track outbound via the VFR approach point of Deep Well, easily identified adjacent to a prominent bend in the road.
