A highlight of his 2003 season was against Carlton at the Telstra Dome in Round 22. Playing in his 150th game, Harvey kicked three goals in the Roos' record-breaking 124-point victory.
He was the only North Melbourne player to have played every game at Manuka Oval during North Melbourne's nine-year stint at the venue.
In 2007 Harvey polled 22 votes in the Brownlow Medal, finishing equal second and in 2008 Harvey polled 17 votes to finish in eighth place despite being one of the favourites to win the award in both years.
In 2010, the week after a career-low five possession game against St Kilda, Harvey led North Melbourne to a 25-point win over West Coast Eagles with a career-best 44 disposals, along with 11 marks, six goal scoring assists and one goal. Harvey also almost kicked a candidate for goal of the year, taking seven bounces of the ball in a run from defence before hitting the post with his shot at goal. In 2011, playing his 312th game, he broke Glenn Archer's all-time club record for games played.
His grandfather, Bill Harvey played two games for North Melbourne in 1948, and his brother Shane Harvey played 14 games for Essendon and North Melbourne between 2002 and 2004.
Harvey is the only remaining player from North Melbourne's 1999 premiership winning team still playing in the AFL today, after Cameron Mooney's retirement from the AFL.
In Round 17 of the 2015 AFL season, Harvey played his 400th Career game, becoming the first North Melbourne player to do so and fourth overall. He kicked two goals in a performance that suggested his career was far from over.
