Hynes started his career at South Australian National Football League (SANFL) club Port Adelaide and was recruited by West Coast with pick 24 in the 1988 VFL Draft. He chose to remain with Port Adelaide for a time, playing in their 1988, 1989 and 1990 SANFL Premiership teams before making his AFL debut with the Eagles in Round 1, 1991 AFL season. From 1992 to 1995 he played finals football every year, including West Coast's 1994 AFL Grand Final win over Geelong.
