Hey anonymous (me again), if you tell us more about what you do know and what you don't then we stand a better chance of being able to help you!

Do you actually know whether he stayed in Australia or not (see below for why I ask)...

If you search the NSW BMD (http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/) it appears that he  married a year after he arrived in Aus (I think you already knew this) here's the details so you can order the certificate...

RegNum, Groom, Groom Given, Bride, Bride Given, District
23654/1939, DALRYMPLE, HEW ALEXANDER, HENDRIE, MARGARET, WAVERLEY

The NSW BMD online facility has limitations on how recently you can search so you may need to rely on other sources for more information (like any living relatives).

However a simple search of Newspaper archives (http://trove.nla.gov.au/) turns up more information about something that occurred on his voyage to Australia...

The Argus [Melbourne, Vic] Tuesday 24 May 1938, Page 3

 
The Sydney Morning Herald Tuesday 24 May 1938, Page 13

 

A google search turns up some other items that may be of interest...
 
"Hew Alexander DALRYMPLE-(345543) to be-2nd Lt., 7th Feb. 1945"
 
There is also notice of an application to be naturalised in Holland...
(use http://translate.google.com/ to translate the text...
"4ยป Naturalisatie van Hew Alexander Dalrymple en van Engelina J.Amon en 19 anderen (,/etsontwerpen)"
(http://www.historici.nl/pdf/europa/S00372.pdf , section 4) him or a namesake ?
 
Good luck.
