I havent researched your arrival in Oz, however, it turns out that whilst doing my family history, one of my Ancestors set sail in the Cameronia in 1927, to emigrate to America, with his family.
There has been actually TWO Cameronia's. The first one was built in 1911 and sunk by U boat in 1917. The second one was built in 1919. She was used for the Glasgow, USA run until WW2. She was the largest troopship used in the Normandy landings.
After the war, she was used as an emmigrant ship to Australia until 1953. She was then named the "Empire Clyde".
There are some photos and more information here:-
