Closest US equivalent for "fully" is "totally," which as most of you know, originated in the Eighties Valley culture of California.
I actually like "fully" more. It's more intense and emphatic. Whereas a Californian might lazily affirm, "like totally, dude" to such truisms as the sky is blue, the surf is high and beer tastes good, you can see an Australian nodding and repeating "fully" with earnest conviction to the same.
E.g. Christmas is overdetermined.
