Many shipping lines sailed via the Suez Canal or South Africa across the Indian Ocean to Australia and the Far East. Others undertook the wonderful, long voyage across the Pacific to reach Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Some lines offered both options and scheduled voyages completely around the world.
From the 1950s to 1970s some of the Australia-bound ocean liners benefited from the Australian government's subsidized immigration scheme.
