The draw has been finalised for the five-week competition.
The Crusaders and Highlanders will be at home in round one with the Hurricanes, Blues and Chiefs heading to Australia for the start of a tournament that pits New Zealand's five Super Rugby against the Reds, Waratahs, Brumbies, Melbourne Rebels and Western Force.
The final between the two top-placed teams on the combined competition table is scheduled for Saturday, June 19.
The draw also includes two 4.35pm kick=off afternoon matches in New Zealand with the Blues hosting the Waratahs at Eden Park in round two, and the Chiefs playing the Rebels in Hamilton in round four.
As previously announced, round three will feature a Super Round with all matches being played at one venue.
NZR and Rugby Australia will announce venues and other details for the Super Round in due course.
NZR general manager professional rugby & performance Chris Lendrum said it was great to have certainty around venue and kick off times heading into Christmas.
"When you see the weekly match ups you realise how compelling the competition will be and I think it's something that will capture the imagination of fans and players on both sides of the Tasman.
"We'll get a chance to see all the teams in action in Super Rugby Aotearoa and Super Rugby AU and there will be a lot of intrigue in how they measure up to each other when Sky Super Rugby Trans-Tasman kicks off."
