The game will mark the first time the facility has hosted an international fixture and is expected to greatly boost the Coast economy.
Coast gridiron stars William Outridge, Ben Graham, Brendan England and Jason Gough are expected to feature heavily in the match that could draw more than 2500 people.
And the boys will be out for redemption after Australia lost the corresponding game in 2010 and 2014, with a win set to grant the 45-man team with a debut slot at the World Cup.
Australian coach Luke Chapman, who also coaches the Sunshine Coast Spartans gridiron team, backed his side to get one back on the Kiwis in perfect July temperatures.
"They got us last time, but the guys are hoping to get one back on them this time around and we are very strong," he said.
"It will be a big spectacle for the Coast and I am sure there will a big crowd turn out to see what it is all about."
"The scouts will be there but we have to get there first," Mr Chapman said.
"Every major scout goes to these things so it is a huge thing for our players to expose their talents on an international stage."
Mayor Mark Jameson applauded the coup as a landmark drawcard for the stadium and backed the region to provide a wonderful destination for players and their families.
"The Australian teams have representatives from almost every state and I'm sure they, as well as the New Zealanders, will enjoy their time on the Coast," he said.
"It's also a new challenge for our council staff at the stadium who will have to transform the first-class playing field into a gridiron arena."
