Lauren Winfield (48) top-scored for England as they made 228-8, with off-spinner Ashleigh Gardner taking 3-47.
Alex Blackwell (67 not out) anchored Australia's response but the home side slipped to 181-6 with seven overs left.
However, Gardner (27) struck two sixes in an important cameo as Australia won with five balls remaining.
