The Wallabies will take on Wales for the 14th straight year, on the 2018 Spring Tour, the Welsh Rugby Union confirmed overnight.
Australia has played Wales in Cardiff 11 times since 2005, as well as facing the UK side in each of the past three Rugby World Cups, a trend that will continue in 2019, and in June Series Tests in 2007 and 2012.
The Aussies have won the past 13 matches between the two countries. Most recently a 29-21 win over the Welsh at Millennium Stadium last November.
Wales will again be the opening match of Australia's Spring Tour, though Wales will play one match beforehand, against Scotland, in a shift from recent history.
Italy is slated as the Wallabies' second Spring Tour opponent, though the Italian Federation is yet to confirm this fixture, with England the final match on the tour.
The Wallabies kick off the Test season against Ireland in June, taking matches to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in that time.
