That's cool just didn't know if you were aware of that or not. After my uni study is over for the year, and I have spare time I might have a go at a southern derivative of it.
Indeed, you are correct. When I first posted this, I didn't have the time to work out the details for the Southern Hemisphere, and I haven't been able to get back to it. Perhaps someone south of the Equator can do a derivative?

The Horizontal Sundial is easily customized to your location. Start by finding your latitude and longitude (in decimal degrees) here: universimmedia.pagesperso-orange.fr/geo/loc.htm
Longitude may be positive or negative; Latitude will be positive. (Otherwise you're in the Southern Hemisphere. Refer to the Caveat above.) Note you must indicate both your exact Latitude as well as the range of your latitude in degrees. This because of an OpenSCAD limitation.
Then find your time zone correction here: timeanddate.com/library/abbreviations/timezones/ There are many different names for time zones. At the site, simply use Find in your browser to look up the correction for your time zone.
Now use Customerizer to enter your data and make an awesome custom sundial!
Note: Although there are other sundials on Thingiverse, this one was created from scratch to be customizable.
