A Wiggly wave goodbye ... Australian fans will be able to farewell The Wiggles around the country in November and December. 

Generations of Wiggles fans will have their chance to farewell Murray, Greg and Jeff at the end of the year when the trio perform their last Australian concerts.

The Wiggles confirmed on Monday that their Celebration Tour will head home in November and December.

Having spent 2012 travelling through Asia, the US, Canada, Ireland, the UK and New Zealand, The Wiggles will return to Australia to send off three of the original four Wiggles.

For Murray Cook, Greg Page and Jeff Fatt the Australian leg of the world tour will be the last time the trio will don their coloured skivvies and perform on stage.

The Red, Yellow and Purple Wiggles announced in May that 2012 would be their final year of touring together.

They are passing on their famous skivvies to a new generation of performers and will work behind the scenes in creative roles for the Wiggles franchise.

Blue Wiggle Anthony (Field) will continue driving in the Big Red Car alongside newcomers Emma Watkins, Lachlan Gillespie and Simon Pryce.

"We've been entertaining children around the world for 21 years and it's important that we plan for the future so that The Wiggles can keep wiggling in the years to come," Murray said in a statement.

Tickets for The Wiggles Celebration Tour will go on sale on Monday, August 27.
