I have had a quick look for passenger arrivals too.

May I share   ;D  in the era we are all looking at,  the NAA passenger arrivals are where first port in Australia is Western Australian port of Fremantle, thus the ship came via the Indian Ocean, either via Suez or around Africa.

The NAAs holdings when the voyages were via Panama Canal and then across Pacific Ocean to ports on eastern seaboard of Australia probably not yet catalogued, assuming NAA actually  has those.  This is my understanding as per one of my reliable ancient rellies, former NSW archivist who was seconded to NAA back last century.  :)

Ah Well,
Perhaps Lyn will check in soon and comment on the findings the team here has provided.

Always helpful to hear feedback from the original poster.
