The 23-year-old, who finished 4th in her Olympic debut four years ago, totally dominated the whole event, and claimed the gold medal with a score of 83.09, a staggering 2.81 points ahead of the second placed Jaelin Kauf of the USA.
In claiming the gold medal, it becomes the first time in Winter Olympic history that Australia has claimed multiple medals on the same day, following Tess Coady's bronze medal in the snowboard slopestyle earlier in the day.
It was an incredibly calm performance from the Australian, who controlled the contest from start to finish, leading after every qualification round, with every score in the 80's.
Anthony is the first Australian to claim a gold medal at the Winter Olympics since Lydia Lassila in the aerials in 2010. Lassila was on hand in Beijing working for Channel 7 to witness Anthony's golden performance and welcomed her to the elite club of six Australians who have won Winter Olympic gold.
"It's just incredible, the hard work does pay off!" a jubilant Jakara said after her golden run.
"It's been a dream of mine my whole life to be an Olympic champion, actually I don't think I've ever stopped dreaming about it."
And while Australian fans were on the edge of their seats as the Super Final got underway, underneath that Australian unfirm was a picture of calmness and control.
"I pay zero attention to what the other scores are, in fact, I don't even know what my score was, all I saw was the number one after my name!"
Jakara was quick to pay tribute to her fellow teammates and her support crew for keeping her calm and focused in the lead up to the Games, and then throughout competition.
"It's a testament to myself and the work of the team around me. Not only does it make me a better athlete, but a better person as well."
Earlier, Britt Cox and Sophie Ash were unable to advance to the final 12, finishing 14th and 16th respectively with scores of 73.04 and 70.47.
For Cox, it ended her 4th Olympic campaign, having made her debut as a 15-year-old in Vancouver in 2010.
The self-confessed ‘mother hen‘ of the Australian team was philosophical after her run in the final 20.
"To be honest, I didn't feel it was my best run of the night. I feel like my final training run just before that one was my best run that I did all night, and for that I'm actually really proud," Britt said.
And Cox was circumspect as to whether she'll stay in the sport after an already glittering career.
"I don't know. I said to myself, 'I'm not going to make any decisions until after the event here', and I guess that time has come, so I have a little bit of thinking to do.
"At the moment, my passion for the sport couldn't be stronger and I just have so much fire in the belly still and love the sport. It's just a matter of how much more my body can keep going," Britt said.
While Sophie Ash enjoyed every moment of her first Olympic Games.
"Everyone is just putting down quality at every run," Sophie said.
"I'm really happy to have made the last 20, it was an awesome experience and I wanted to see how far I could go.
"There's always stuff to improve on and that's my job now.
