The easiest thing for you to do is to download Stellarium and this will allow you to select your area and will then show you all celestial objects visible (and not so visible) in the sky.

But for reference Orion and Betelgeuse are about 20° above the horizon to the south west just after sunset.

As per Chadwickus - Stellarium is good.

There is also Cyber Sky for PC


Both good for finding constellations and planets etc depending on the time of day and your location.

Hey, I am in Australia.

Bit overcast outside tonight but when it's clear a short drive get's me away from all light pollution and the sky looks magnificent!
