Unable to find immigration record

Hi there,
I was wondering if some of you guys would be able to give me some advice to a problem I have at the moment. I have discovered all my family links in Australia and have come to the man that emigrated from England. I have found his birth in england and his death in Australia but I cannot find him in any transportation records.
Has anyone got any ideas of how he might have gotten to Australia and how I could find a record of it?

gives a time frame of leaving 1840 -1865
on his death certificate, it should state how long in the colonies?? also, parents

you have to bear in mind that from where he left, nobody cared however, they should be something on entry to Aus.
