passenger ships leaving london area/dover to new zealand and australia

My father Eric B Parker worked on board a ship going to NZ from UK just after the second world war - he returned and collected his family- wife Hilda, and 3 children Stephanie, Nina and Christopher and we all, as passengers on board the ship ?. We went to NZ for approx. 18months...then returned. A few years later we all repeated the experience but this time we went to Australia -melbourse initially, i think. We stayed in australia [various States] returning to England in ones and twos, in the early 1950s and 1960s. Most of the ships we travelled on were the p and o Straths....strathmore, stratheden etc... My brother and I did travel back from Perth Australia on the Flavia to Naples? in the 50s i think. Is there anyone with any info re my family and these journies? thanks
