Arthur George Wood passenger from England to Australia 1911/12

Arthur George Wood passenger from England to Australia 1911/12

I am trying to find details of my great-grandfather's arrival in Australia from England. We have narrowed it down to the departure being after the 1911 census was taken in England, which was in April of that year. He arrived before his wife and children came out which was July 1912. He eventually settled in Perth but we suspect he may have initially arrived at another port in Australia, mainly because as far as we can see there's no record of him arriving in Western Australia. I have found an Arthur L Wood arriving 5th Jan 1912 in Sydney and thought this might be a typo because the passenger list was typewritten and it could be a transcribing error. I can't find any other records of this to look further to see if this could be him. He apparently was a publican in London before coming out to Australia. I would appreciate any ideas about where to go from here because it feels like there's nowhere else to look.
Thanks,
Sue

think you will have to go to the Oz records for immigration - I have looked at all ports for 1911-1912 & all the A & Arthur's etc but there are some 28 records that show no christian name or initial nor birth date so....

Thanks for looking into it for me. Sounds like a good suggestion so I'll see what I can find that way.
