They meet South Africa on July 8 in Pretoria before flying home to take on Argentina a week later at Sydney’s CommBank Stadium.
The Australians will then play back-to-back matches against the All Blacks on July 29 (MCG) and August 5 (Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin).
“The Rugby Championship is one of the toughest competitions in the world and to play against high-quality sides in South Africa, New Zealand and Argentina in a World Cup year is perfect preparation for our team,” Jones said.
