HENDERSON arrival on the Gold Fields. 1855-1861

I have a John HENDERSON born in Dumbarton, Scotland in 1825. Married Mary Dogherty, born in Carvan near Dublin, Ireland. A number of children born in Scotland including Hugh, James, John, and then Neil in 1855, then William born in Nuggong Reef, Victorian Gold Fields on 6 October 1861. John died also in 1861 on 13 January.
So, they must have travelled to Australia within the years of 1855 and 1861.
I can't find immigration or ship passenger lists or
John's death place.
Also, 13 January to 6 October is 38 weeks and a very close to a full term birth.
Can anyone help?
