Dear Possum,
I suggest you to give us more details.
As you know last name Smith is not Italian, so we have not idea in what part of Italy he was from; check his naturalization record, ship manifest, marriage record, passport....maybe you find something,
good luck and let us know, bye Riccardo

I did a simple search for Nicholas Smith at this site & it shows 4 results.

http://archway.archives.govt.nz/


The LDS Church (Mormans) have many films of records for both Australia
& NZ. You may find some that help you. Here is their link...just do a "place search," then click on "title" of interest & continue.

Also, a link to "Australia Research Guide"

Hope they help some!
