With the win-or-bust two-legged 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Honduras taking place later this month, Australia coach Ange Postecoglou will be buoyed by Luongo's displays in the English Championship.
Despite his strong club form, the 25-year-old was left out of the starting line-up for the two matches against Syria last month.
However, with Melbourne Victory's Mark Milligan suspended for the first leg against Honduras on November 11, Luongo - and fit-again Mile Jedinak - could be in line for recalls for Australia's biggest two matches since the 2015 Asia Cup final.
Luongo has been boldly dubbed the best midfielder outside the Premier League by QPR boss Ian Holloway and was instrumental in this week's wins against league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United.
The Sydneysider has progressed from an attack-minded playmaker at Swindon Town into a central midfield general, thriving with the responsibility of captaincy after deputising for Nedum Onouha who is sidelined with a ruptured hamstring.
Luongo had never skippered a team at any level and admits he was taken aback when he was given the news by Holloway.
"At first it was a bit daunting," Luongo told QPR's official Loftcast podcast.
"My first proper game was Middlesbrough away and I didn't know what type of person I could be as a captain ... I didn't want to be false.
"I have learned a lot from Nedum. He knows my strengths and he has reassured me that I didn't have to change who I am as a player or what I do before a game.
"We have boys who will get people up ... that are loud in and in your face. I'd like to be the person that when I play well the team plays well.
"If I can lead in that way I am happy."
After a mixed start to his career at Loftus Road, since arriving in 2015, Luongo is enjoying a breakout season with his side now just four points off the top six after a midweek 1-0 win over Sheffield United.
Despite being well settled in west London, Luongo is striving to play in the Premier League and said that desire is rubbing off on his team-mates.
"I want to get better. I am almost selfish about it," he said.
"If you're not pulling your weight, I am not going to get to where I want to be.
"Everyone is on that page, The better he does the better I do.
"I may stay in the Championship for the rest of my life, you don't know. I might be at a place where I think I can do better.
"I know that I am doing my best I can every (training) session and I don't let anyone get away with anything."
