It actually does work in the Southern Hemisphere, but you have to start it at the other end.

No, the right side is correct for both hemispheres, but in Australia the time is 47. I have done the math.

Australia is hardly the only country in the Southern Hemisphere. I know for a fact it doesn't work in Peru, although now that I think about it that could have just been the altitude...

Of course it doesn't work in Peru. Not with that altitute it doesn't.
