The Wallabies will head to Port Elizabeth to take on the Springboks in 2018, for the first time in 55 years.

South Africa announced its 2018 home Tests overnight, with Australia in for a trip to the Eastern Cape, their first since 1963, which South Africa won 22-6.

Australia will head to Argentina after the Springboks clash, before the third Bledisloe in Tokyo next year.

The Wallabies have already announced their home calendar for 2018, with Tests in Brisbane and the Gold Coast during the Rugby Championship.

Australia will open its 2018 Test series against Ireland in June.
