Australia is a large continent. Will this country be a Superpower within the Pacific region in the foreseeable future?

Only one way for that to happen: Nuclear Holocaust wipes out most of the current powerful nations in the world. Since there is no guarantee that this won't happen, there is no way to know one way or the other. The only other scenario would be for Austrialia to see a massive influx of people similar to what 1800-1950 was for the United States, but there isn't currently a good reason for people to immigrate.

You meant to immigrate to Australia correct? And I don't believe the "massive influx of people" has ended in the U.S. nor will it anytime soon...

It would be nice, they have helped the U.S. through the wars, e.g. Vietnam..

Its a large continent but its got a small population so it wont be a military superpower and doesnt have the resources to be an economic superpower
