    The Canadian Campbells took six months from when their ship was supposed to leave New York (October 1852) to when they set foot in Melbourne: two months wallowing to Rio, set ashore under difficult circumstances (the skipper was a crook, on thier version of it), and then to Melbourne on a nervous Dutch East Indiaman whose skipper hove to, every night.The stepped ashore on April 3, 1853, and as a lawyer, Campbell got a job as a Gold Commissioner. There is good general background on goldfields life near Beechworth, some details of prices and conditions: a good general account. My copy came as a Google Books pdf file. It's a keeper!
