Tri-Nations - New Zealand at full strength for decider
Captain Richie McCaw and a host of front-line players including Dan Carter return for the game in Brisbane after being rested for last Saturday's loss to South Africa.
Also recalled are tighthead prop Owen Franks, second row Brad Thorn, and centre pairing Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith.
The only notable absentee is Jerome Kaino, who is rested after the South Africa match, allowing Adam Thomson to return to his favoured blindside flanker position after struggling in McCaw's openside spot against the Springboks.
"This is a tournament-defining match for the team," said coach Graham Henry.
"The winner wins the Tri Nations, it's as simple as that. Australia are a dangerous team to play and they will be looking to bounce back from the loss against us in Auckland, so we will have to play at our very best."
The All Blacks have beaten Australia in 11 of their last 12 meetings, and are favourites to win the World Cup for the second time when they host the tournament which runs from September 9-October 23.
