Smile In search of records

Hello. My name is Marie and I live in Australia.

I am interested in finding out how I can obtain historical records of crewmen employed around 1911-12, as I believe my grandfather came to Aust (melbourne) in 1912 as a crewman on the MAKARINI.

I am having no luck getting this information. I am trying to assist my Dad with this.

I know this maybe a very long shot, but i would be very grateful of any advice!

Thank you
