Scrivener has also performed the role of interim coach for Edinburgh Rugby between the tenures of Rob Moffat and Michael Bradley and has seen Scotland upset the odds before against Australia in 2009.
"They (Scotland) will be looking for this tour to really springboard them, the next generation is coming through," Scrivener told the Scotsman.
"They've done it before, they got us at Murrayfield, they beat South Africa, Samoa, Argentina.
"In tournament rugby they haven't done so well, but in these situations they've got a really good history."
Joining Scrivener in supporting Wallabies head coach Robbie Deans are Tony McGahan, the current Munster coach, and former Australia prop Andrew Blades.
And Scrivener credits his time in Scotland as the perfect preparation for his new role.
"One thing I did pick up in Scotland was squad management given we had players dropping out for Tests quite often and it was great to experience that, given the role I am heading into," he said.
