Lars was a seaman. Therefore it is unlikely you'll find him as a passenger departing from a Danish or German port. He most likely arrived in Australia as a crewman on a ship. Sometimes records of crewman can be hard or impossible to find.

Georg Emil Køhler 29 married, sømand (seaman) born in Nyborg

Jacob Wilhelm [Køhler] 6 deres Børn (their child) born in Rørvig
Peter Christian [Køhler] 4 deres Børn born in Rørvig
Georg Anton [Køhler] 2 deres Børn born in Rørvig

Below Lars in 1880. "Hans nevø" means his nephew; neveu may be a variant of the same.
