They've just won their first international outside of the Sydney Olympics since 1982 and now the Australian Volleyroos believe there's not a team in their group they can't beat.
The Volleyroos are in Canberra for the World Grand Prix's group three finals, which essentially brings together the third tier of volleyball-playing nations.
The tournament finals pit Australia against Venezuela on Saturday, with the winner advancing to Sunday's gold medal game against the winner of a showdown between Hungary and France at the AIS.
The Volleyroos claimed their first ever World Grand Prix victory with an emotional 3-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago, and proved they're no longer easybeats with a host of other close results.
It was also their first win in an international FIVB competition, outside of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, since 1982.
Volleyroos coach Shannon Winzer says the belief has never wavered and an overdue victory gave them a taste of what they can achieve.
"What we're finding is that in previous years we were all about wanting to play to the best of our ability," Winzer said.
"Last year we were about wanting to compete. Now that we're able to compete and proving that we're able to compete, now it's about winning.
"Every year our focus is shifting. No longer is it about just playing well and just competing, but actually holding onto those leads and coming through with the win.
"Everyone was pretty excited. I think it was an emotional win for people because it had been such a long time since we had won an FIVB game.
"I think it just gave us a taste of what we can achieve. Yes we were excited by the win, but it was really about 'okay, this is what we can do and we can do more of this'."
The Volleyroos have had little time to rest between their drought-breaking win and a clash on home soil, training at the AIS just five hours after flying in from Mexico.
The Australian camp has even gone to the lengths of calling in sleep physiologists to map out sleeping patterns to eliminate the effects of jet lag.
Australia was the only team to take a set off Hungary, the 2016 European champions, in the preliminary round, and they also went the closest to upsetting France.
"We're excited about this weekend. There's not a team here this weekend that we can't beat," Winzer said.
"I think this is the first time that we've entered into a round, every round this year we've entered into the rounds knowing we have ability to beat these teams. That's a really good feeling.
"It's going to come down whether or not we can execute and remain consistent. When we get leads, hang on to those leads. This weekend we have a real chance at going through to the finals and the gold medal game."
This year is Australia's fourth in the World Grand Prix, while Hungary, France and Venezuela are all in their first season in the tournament.
