Hi and a Happy New Year to you all
I'd like to access the Passenger List for the SS Aberdeen on her voyage from Plymouth to Sydney - September/October 1885
Can anyone help?

try googling "the Ships List". They have access to different passenger lists to different countries.

In my experience, generally speaking, emigration passenger lists between 1776-1889 have not survived.
Like most other ports the Outward passenger lists for the port of Plymouth begin in 1890.
I suggest you search the incoming passenger lists in various Australian archives. Sydney archives have passenger lists from 1923 so maybe you should look in the archives of NSW.
