There is a method of finding north by aiming two sticks at a star and then tracking the star's movement to find which way is north. You can read the full description here.
However, there is the a debate in the comments (with 6 upvotes) about whether or not it works the exact same way in both hemispheres specifically in reference to this to this image which demonstrates the relationship between the movement of the star and the direction one is facing.
Note that in the southern hemisphere, North and South will be reversed. – dotancohen Sep 19 '16 at 5:48
Obviously, stars are going to rise in the east and set in the west but what about the movement left to right? Does that stay the same in both hemispheres?
