Barely two weeks before the World Cup, the hosts proved their batting depth to recover from 60-4 and post 278-8 with Maxwell (95) and Mitchell Marsh (60) rebuilding the innings before James Faulkner's late assault.
Maxwell led Australia to 278 for 8 as they batted first after losing the toss, then had the opportunity of a hat-trick as the hosts bowled out England for 166 to boost their preparation for the Cricket World Cup.
Maxwell followed up his batting heroics with bowling figures of 4 for 46 to go with the sharp catch he took to send back Taylor as England collapsed for 166 in 39.1 overs.
