Are you aware that their mother Laura Moss re-married in 1917 to a Mr. R MacDonald?
It is possible they might have travelled to Australia under the surname MacDonald.

well Dora Rose had a good life
I see Dora married Roland Argent 17th december 1921 - so I presume you are a direct descendant .
do you know a lady named Alison Heathorn ?   she has this tree - maybe she has knowledge of when they arrived ?
I wonder why she moved from Mount Barker , South Australia to Tasmania where she died ??

Just putting the birth registrations for reference

MOSS, DORD  ROSE     NUNN 
GRO Reference: 1905  D Quarter in IPSWICH  Volume 04A  Page 1021

Dora married on 17 December 1921 at the Methodist Church Mount Barker in Mount Barker, South Australia, to Rolan (Roland?) Horace Argent.  Her father is Albert George Moss.
 
MOSS, BEATRICE  MAY     NUNN 
GRO Reference: 1908  S Quarter in IPSWICH  Volume 04A  Page 1063

There is a marriage for a Beatrice May Moss on 26 September 1936 at St Cuthberts Church Prospect, Adelaide to a John Albert Lush.

Beatrice's father is given as George Albert Moss.

Parents marriage with father's names the other way round:

Marriages Sep 1904
Moss    Albert George        Ipswich    4a   1865   
Nunn    Laura Maud        Ipswich    4a   1865

I can't see any travel records for when the girls first left.

Possibly travelled with parents, who were living in Prospect at the time of Beatrice’s marriage.
