Australia will also squeeze in a one-dayer against Ireland in Belfast into their 23-day itinerary.
There are concerns about familiarity breeding contempt for cricket fans in Australia and the UK with the 2013 Ashes series in England being followed up by a return series in 2013/14 in Australia.
The latter series has been brought forward because of the competing demands of the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
