Getting Started with Skywatcher (In Southern Hemisphere)

I recently acquired the SkyWatcher tracker here in New Zealand, and I would like to get it set up so I can start to play with it but the instructions for polar alignment are baffling to me. Without a view of Polaris, is there a good guide somewhere for getting myself set up properly that is understandable to someone without a lot of technical expertise?
