The German world No.6 will meet Serena Williams in the final after she defeated the 24-year-old 7-5 6-2.
The world No.47, who was ranked No.144 when she lost in the first round of qualifying 12 months ago, is set to break into the top 30 after her run to the semi-finals in Melbourne.
"At this level you're constantly being tested," said Konta. "Whoever you're playing, your limits are constantly being pushed. I'm really happy how I was able to keep pushing my threshold, as well, keep gaining lots of new experiences, and just keep improving."
