Hannebery was drafted by the Sydney Swans in the 2008 AFL Draft, but remained in Melbourne in 2009 to complete his secondary education at Xavier College. He made his debut in round 16, 2009, for Sydney against Carlton, while still attending high school. He is the son of former Footscray player Matt Hannebery.
Hannebery was awarded the Ron Evans Medal as the 2010 AFL Rising Star. Hotly tipped all year to take out the coveted award, he polled the maximum 45 votes to beat number one draft pick, Tom Scully with 35 votes. Hannebery's outstanding season was further rewarded with finishing 10th in the Bob Skilton Medal and winning the club's Rising Star Award.
The 2011 season was a strong second season for Hannebery as he improved markedly to finish seventh in the Skilton Medal. While he did not poll as many Brownlow Medal votes as in his first full year of senior football in 2010, he played very consistent footy and offered great assistance to the rest of the Swans' midfield as a source of possession and momentum.
Hannebery had another strong season in 2012 as the Swans went on to win the premiership. He placed 10th in the 2012 Bob Skilton Medal a week after his side beat Hawthorn in the 2012 AFL Grand Final. Many observers were of the opinion that Hannebery should have won the Norm Smith Medal, but he lost out to winner and teammate Ryan O'Keefe.
In 2013 Hannebery won the first New Zealand-awarded Anzac Medal in the Anzac Day clash between Sydney and St Kilda. The game was played at Westpac Stadium in New Zealand's capital, Wellington. This was the first game ever played for premiership points outside of Australia.
Hannebery's 2015 season was arguably his best, finishing the home and away season as the AFL's leader in possessions. His best game was against Adelaide in round 18, with 40 possessions and 3 goals. He was rewarded with the AFL Coaches Association player of the year award, polling one vote ahead of Nat Fyfe.
