5x Premiership Player and AFL Hawks Legend, Dermott Brereton, will join Getaway Trekking this October for an exclusive Kokoda Trail trek!

After an illustrious career with the Hawks, where he played in five premiership sides and represented his state on nine occasions, Dermott has forged a successful career as a television presenter, football commentator, newspaper columnist, and radio host.

Dermott’s playing career saw him play over 200 games mostly for Hawthorn, later playing at Collingwood and Sydney, kicking 464 goals in total over his professional career. Dermott, an icon of the game, is widely regarded as one of the best centre half forwards of all time.

After retiring in 1995, Dermott took on the role as coach of the Australian team for the International Rules Series against Ireland for 2 years.

These days, Dermott is busy with Foxtel, providing match commentary and hosting his own show on Foxtel’s new channel Fox Footy, as well as being one of the key members of SEN radio’s AFL commentary team.

A wartime history buff, Dermott jumped at the chance to participate in a Kokoda Trail expedition and is looking forward to trekking the 96km journey with Getaway Trekking later this year.
