Dunn was a local player at South Melbourne Districts when recruited into the South Melbourne team. After sporadic appearances in the seniors over three seasons, Dunn went to Corowa. He played there until 1966, when he returned for one final VFL season.

He finished his career at Launceston and took home the Hec Smith Memorial Medal in 1968, as the 'best and fairest' player in the Northern Tasmanian Football Association. The following season, Dunn represented Tasmania in the Adelaide Carnival.
