The Black Stars face the Socceroos in Rustenburg on Saturday, knowing they may be just one win away from securing a place in the next round of the World Cup.
Pim Verbeek's men were thumped 4-0 by the Germans on Sunday, but Appiah knows they are a better team than the result suggests.
"Australia is a very good team and we won't be deceived by their heavy defeat to Germany," he told the Ghana Football Association website, www.ghanafa.org.
"At this level of football, it is very dangerous to get complacent and we are aware of that. It will be a different game against us because they want to come back from their defeat.
"We know they will be dangerous but we are focused and determined."
