The Diamonds came out with a new-look lineup, and the attitude to match, as they set about reversing their fortunes from the first two games in New Zealand.
Sophie Garbin was given the opportunity to start at goal shooter, and Jo Weston, parachuted into the squad after Sunday Aryang was injured, was given the wing defence bib to kick off the match.
The Aussies had a strong start, jumping out to a four goal lead within minutes, and never looked back.
The Melbourne Vixens combination of Kate Moloney and Liz Watson was devastating early, running riot and finding space at circle edge to feed the Australian shooters.
Sophie Garbin was able to compete physically, and hold space to provide a target for the feeders, and the Aussies quickly built momentum.
After the game, Diamonds' coach Stacey Marinkovich was effusive in her praise for the goal shooter.
"She was very strong under the post - and she's very creative with the way she moves her body and looks for the screens, but likes to deceive and create space for her goal attack.
"She hasn't played a lot in goal shooter for Australia, but I think, her goal attack game has given her some other strings to her bow and I think you're starting to see that out on court as well."
At the other end of the court, Jo Weston was terrorising Ameliaranne Ekenasio, and allowing Courtney Bruce to work against Grace Nweke.
Marinkovich was also happy to heap praise on the defender who was making her first international appearance for the Australians since the Commonwealth Games.
"I think Jo played her way. I think that's where the tone is set in some part, but she is close-marking, she likes to put the pressure on.
"What it does is that it brings out the strengths of the people around her, and we don't try and change her game too much."
The Silver Ferns, missing Peta Toeava, struggled to feed Nweke with the same ease and efficiency in the first two matches, after the wing attack was left behind in New Zealand.
With the Australians firing on all cylinders, the lead steadily built in the first half, the Diamonds scoring 31 goals to 22.
After half time, the Silver Ferns came out pressing, taking the quarter by a solitary goal, and mounting a serious challenge, but the Diamonds had the answers.
Liz Watson and Sophie Garbin each kicked it up a notch, while Amy Parmenter was introduced for Jamie-Lee Price, to raucous applause from the sold-out Melbourne crowd.
The Aussies steadied the ship late in the third term, and then powered through the fourth, holding the Silver Ferns to just nine goals in the last quarter.
In the end, Marinkovich was happy with her team's ability to control the tempo of the game, and the flow, unlike the previous two games in New Zealand.
"I thought you just saw the brand we wanted to play. We started to understand what New Zealand is doing out on court and we were able to get ball speed, and to be able to get over 60 goals is showing that we're going at our pace.
"It took real intent in our attack and defence, and it was collective, and obviously the people that came on needed to run it hard."
That control also meant that the Diamonds were able to put the pressure on the Silver Ferns shooter all the way up the court, generating 26 turnovers and wreaking havoc on the Silver Ferns.
"I think its more the consistency of being able to apply [pressure]. I don't think we attack the body.
"We got into good positions to attack the ball, and that means putting yourself in a contest - and they're going for the ball as well, but I thought we were putting ourselves at good angles to contest.
"When you do that, it becomes a little bit more brutal in some part, but we were in good positions and we held strong. I think that is something that you've got to do to build good pressure, and we did that consistently."
It was an emphatic performance - setting the scene for a dramatic finish to the Constellation Cup on Sunday. With the series to be decided by goal difference if the matches are 2-2, Sunday's finale becomes a winner-takes-all blockbuster. If the Silver Ferns take it out, they will retain the Cup, but with Australia now ahead on goal difference, they will take back the Cup if they can level it at 2-2.
