Donna,  Yes George & Beatrice WOODS who arrived on the Strathaird - she was nee BEASLEY so not your Beatrice - they were living in Preston in Victoria (see info that Debra posted above about them returning to Australia after a holiday in UK)

I originally found that arrival on the National Archives record search-  www.naa.gov.au

Unfortunately we do not know which state your Beatrice went to & whether she was enrolled for voting either

The one listed  in the electoral rolls turned out to be the other Beatrice and her husband George & their family

Donna,  I have searched the immigration records that are online in the National Archives and she is not listed but there are records that are missing from the archives

This facts sheet may help with further info & you could contact the National Archives to see if they have her listed in a record that is not online as yet

http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/fact-sheets/fs227.aspx

Let's hope that someone comes across this message you have posted & gets in touch in the future -

Elizabeth
