You can rewrite the sentence to understand this. (что?) Автомобили (что делали?) переезжали (кого?) Джона Мальнеса (откуда?) из Австралии (сколько раз?) три раза. Автомобили is the subject. Джона Мальнеса is the object here.

Iris told you everything correctly and I would like to add that Джона Мальнеса is not genetive case. It is accusativa case, and the object of a direct action is pretty much always in the accusative.
