He was playing for Murray Bushrangers when Geelong drafted him.
Byrnes was recruited from the Murray Bushrangers and was the last draftee selected by the Geelong Football Club in the AFL rookie draft in 2002. He was given the guernsey number 46, but changed it to 17 at the start of the 2005 season. Byrnes also wore the #10 guernsey when he co-captained the Murray Bushrangers.
Byrnes competed in the 2005 AFL Grand Final sprint, coming in third place. The speedy-left footer had an inconsistent season in 2006, with fluctuating form, failure to convert in front of goals and the inability to break into a strong team seeing him being put in and out of the playing squad. In 2007, Byrnes was a part of the 2007 Premiership team, picking up 14 disposals and kicking one goal.
After a lacklustre season in 2008 and missing out on finals, he produced the best year of his career in 2009 kicking 32 goals 11 behinds for the season, crediting his form to an early pre-season and improved fitness. He cemented a spot in the team, missing only two games due to injury, and was picked to play in the 2009 AFL Grand Final, where he had 16 possessions, kicked one goal and became a two-time premiership player. He backed up this year with another solid season in 2010 kicking 35 goals for the season.
In 2011 he only played five games, missing most of the season due to calf and knee injuries. He was selected as an emergency for the 2011 AFL Grand Final, but despite there being some injury concerns over Steve Johnson, he was not called up to the final team.
Byrnes announced his retirement on 30 July 2014, effective immediately.
