He played for the Sandringham Dragons in TAC Cup before being drafted by Adelaide in 2009.
Gunston was raised in Melbourne and attended Haileybury College, playing school football alongside three other future AFL players (Tom Scully, Jack Hutchins, and Tom Lynch). His father, Ray Gunston, played VFA football for Brunswick, and later moved into sports administration. Gunston began his junior career with the Beaumaris Football Club. He originally played mainly as a midfielder, but after growing 15 centimetres (5.9 in) in two years he began to play more in key positions. In 2009, the year he became eligible for the AFL Draft, Gunston was selected for the Sandringham Dragons, a TAC Cup team. Early in the season, he dislocated his elbow in a practice game, an injury which took eight weeks to heal. Gunston played for the Dragons in only their last six matches, but was nonetheless a second-round pick in the 2009 AFL National Draft, taken by Adelaide with the 29th pick overall.
In 2011 he played 12 games, kicking five goals against Richmond in round 23.
In his first season at Hawthorn he played 19 games, including the 2012 Grand Final, and followed up in 2013 with 23 games.
Gunston played in the 2013 Grand Final against Fremantle, and was one of the best players on the ground, kicking 4 goals to be the leading goal scorer in the match and finishing second in the Norm Smith Medal count to teammate Brian Lake. Gunston played an important role as key forward in 2014, finishing with a career high 58 goals for the season, and earning his second premiership as Hawthorn triumphed in the Grand Final. In 2015 Gunston was Hawthorn's leading goalkicker, kicking 57 goals. He injured his knee in the Qualifying Final against the West Coast Eagles, but returned in the Grand Final to kick 4 goals, in Hawthorn's three-peat victory against the Eagles once more.
In 2016, Gunston was forced to take on new roles due to the season-ending injury received by Jarryd Roughead, occasionally moving into the centre. Regardless, he kicked 51 goals over the Home-and-Away season and the finals, and was widely regarded as being in excellent form.
In February 2019, it was announced that Gunston had been appointed Vice-Captain, alongside new Captain, Ben Stratton. His forward partnership with Breust was not as effective as the previous season, with the pair kicking only a combined 60 goals between them, and Hawthorn missing the finals.
Currently, Jack Gunston is 31 years, 7 months and 23 days old. Jack Gunston will celebrate 32nd birthday on a Monday 16th of October 2023.
