Australia will next year welcome England in a three-match series for the first time.
The two nations have never contested a three-match series despite a century-old rivalry, but they will battle it out in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney next June.
Australian Rugby Union CEO Bill Pulver said: "With a rivalry that dates back to 1909, it is remarkable that Australia and England have never before played a three-match series and the history of this occasion is sure to add to the anticipation for the tour."
England head coach Stuart Lancaster said: "A Test series in Australia is a massive challenge and one to really look forward to.
"We all saw the excitement generated by the three Tests on the British & Irish Lions tour.
"We haven't toured Australia since 2010 so for most of our squad it will be their first opportunity to play a senior Test there and I'm sure it will be a great series."
England manager Roy Hodgson says there have been a lot of changes to his "exciting" side since their disastrous World Cup a year ago.
Ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia, Hodgson insisted it wasn't down to him to say if England were better than 12 months ago.
Sunday's match comes comes a year to the date since England's World Cup defeat to Italy.
The side has been freshened up significantly since then and is unbeaten in this season's fixtures, but Hodgson would not be drawn on their progress.
It's not for me to say, I don't think self-assessments are the best. But there's been a lot of changes, young players have come into the squad and team, a very different team to the one from a year ago.
I believe it's an exciting team with large margins of progression.
We will grow and get better, I have to be satisfied on their behalf.
Uncapped Somerset all-rounder Craig Overton has been called up to the England squad for their one-day series against New Zealand as cover for the injured Chris Jordan.
Jordan will be assessed before the third match at the Rose Bowl on Sunday after picking up a side injury.
The series is tied at 1-1 after England suffered a 13-run Duckworth-Lewis loss at The Oval on Friday.
England have been warned history will count for nothing when they face Slovenia in their Euro 2016 qualifier tomorrow.
Roy Hodgson's side travel to Ljubljana having won all three of their meetings with Slovenia.
However, Slovenia captain Bostjan Cesar does not think that will matter when the teams meet at the Stozice Stadium in front of a capacity crowd of nearly 17,000.
Sunday is a new game. This is what was. And we are professionals. We have to prepare well for this match - we know what awaits us.
We know that they are the favourite in the group. They have a lot of good players, players with extra class. We need to look collectively and try to stop it all.
The whole of Slovenia will be with us in the stadium or watching on TV and I promise that we will leave our hearts on the pitch.
England recorded their biggest ever winning margin in a one day international as they bowled New Zealand out for 198.
The hosts won the match at Edgbaston by 210 runs to secure a perfect start to the ODI series.
It came on the day England hit a record-breaking score of 408-9, their highest ever in the format.
The two sides meet again at The Oval on Friday for the second match of the series.
It was certainly a different performance to the World Cup.
For us to come out of the traps like that is outstanding.
I'm as surprised as anybody given we have two or three new faces in the team, but they held themselves brilliantly and the senior players were outstanding.
England smashed their way to a record one day international score as they made 408-9 against New Zealand at Edgbaston today.Read the full story ›
