Welcome to the South!

Stellarium is your best option for PC or Mac. On a tablet then Stellarium or Sky Safari. I have both and prefer the way Stellarium handles time in the App; you simply drag the sky forward or backward although I do use Skay Safari more often simply because it has a very good map display and a lot of info on most objects. I have both free and Pro versions.

Any planetarium program will show you what is up anywhere in the world. Set your latitude to between 30-40 deg. south. Crux is circumpolar and will be high in the south in the evening sky in winter and low in south in the evening sky in summer. In fact you can use it as a clock if you know the seasons well. Enjoy!
