The power of attorney is now meaningless, it expired as soon as she died.
One of you needs to be appointed as Administrator or substitute executor, the court will do that, I'm not fully up on the procedure, but a letter from each of the other beneficiaries advising that they have no objection to XYZ being appointed as administrator, may help speed up the process. As the death occurred in Victoria it will certainly speed up the process if the administrator also lives in that state.
Take a look at this page for some information.
Others may reply with a little more detail.
