There's a possible marriage of an Ethel Heathcote to George Goerk...if all else fails it might be worth trying to eliminate this one, or see if she emigrated under married name?

The above entry for the marriage in 1918 is the "Goerk" entry showing on Freebmd.

It does look like Goerk on the original image.

Found a newspaper article possibly about Ethel's husband:

The Daily News (Perth, WA : 1882 - 1950) Saturday 31 January 1925

"Breach of Traffic Act.— George Goerk appeared before Mr. H. J. Crais, R.M., at the Fremantle Police Court this morning charged with unlawfully assuming control of a motor cycle, the property of Leonard Mayfield, contrary to the Traffic Act, Accused, for whom Mr. F. G. Unmack appeared, pleaded not guilty. The evidence for the prosecution showed that, accused took the motor cycle from outside the Freemasons' Hotel last night without the consent of the owner. He mounted the machine and after travelling a few yards fell off. In the presence of a constable and the owner of the cycle, accused claimed that the cycle belonged to him. He was under the influence of liquor. Mr. Unmack did not call any evidence for the defence, but stated that the accused was 'silly drunk' last night and incapable of knowing what he was doing. Accused had not been in trouble previously. The R.M. said there was no doubt that accused unlawfully assumed control of the cycle. He would be fined 50s with 15s costs."

Oh, well found MarieCeleste!

From the information available, it looks like they first stayed in Western Australia. Guess they moved to New South Wales but George seems to have returned to W.A.

The Police Gazette issues were in N.S.W. so may be difficult to know who left who? Only seeing Ethel on her own on the N.S.W. ERs.

I'm thinking that they moved to NSW very soon after that newspaper article ......

Could be MC. Strange though that he doesn't re-appear on the ERs.
