Kellond-Knight signed with Melbourne City for the 2018–19 W-League season.[5]

On October 9, 2018 Kellond-Knight earned her 100th cap for Australia in a friendly against England, which ended in a 1-1 draw.[9] At the 2019 Women's World Cup, she scored a goal directly from a corner kick in the Round of 16 match against Norway.[10]
