Charlie Mark Cameron was born on July 5, 1994 (age 29 years ) in Mount Isa, Queensland into an Aboriginal Australian family (Lardil and Waanyi). He attended primary school in Mornington Island, Queensland before moving to Brisbane to board at Marist College Ashgrove. As a schoolboy, he played baseball, rugby union and rugby league at high levels.
Cameron played several games of Australian rules football while attending Marist College and spent six months in the Brisbane Lions Talent Academy before quitting football to focus on rugby. Following graduation in late 2011, at the age of 17, Cameron moved with his family to Newman, Western Australia.
His brother, Jarrod, was a professional Australian rules footballer who played for the West Coast Eagles. While in Newman, Cameron was talked into playing for the local football team, the Newman Saints. He began playing club football for the first time for the Saints in 2012 and impressed so much that, towards the end of the season, he was invited to play for the Swan Districts Football Club and played three Colts games.
Entering his first pre-season ever with Swan Districts in 2013, he impressed the coaches so much that he earned a spot in the senior team for the first round of the 2013 WAFL season, and represented Western Australia at the 2013 AFL Under 18 Championships, which led to him being picked up by Adelaide in the rookie draft despite only having played a total of 30-40 games of Australian rules football.
Charlie Cameron showed excellent form in the SANFL early in his first season and was rewarded with a promotion to the senior list, replacing the injured Nathan van Berlo. He made his debut in round 9 against Collingwood, kicking a goal and evading a tackle to set up another.
Cameron went on to play seven AFL games in 2014 despite battling a groin injury, kicking nine goals including a bag of three against Fremantle in round 12. At the end of the season, he won the Crows’ Mark Bickley Emerging Talent Award.
He cemented his place in Adelaide’s best 22 in 2015, playing 22 games for 29 goals and 17 goal assists. Highlights included a career-best four goals against the Gold Coast in round 17, and kicking the winning goal in Adelaide’s elimination final victory over the Western Bulldogs. He was nominated for the 2015 AFL Rising Star award for his performance against the Brisbane Lions in round 13, in which he kicked a goal and had three goal assists, five tackles and seven inside 50s.
In Round 9, 2017 Cameron starred against the Brisbane Lions, kicking four goals in the third quarter, including a run that involved two bounces, and a high pack mark. He had another impressive performance the next week in Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round, kicking three goals against Fremantle in a 100-point win. In October 2017, Cameron requested a trade home to Queensland with Brisbane being his preferred destination despite being contracted to Adelaide until the end of the 2018 season.
He was officially traded to Brisbane during the trade period. After helping the Brisbane Lions to reach the finals from 2019 to 2022, he gained a reputation for his ferocious efforts in front of goal. His finest hour came in the semi-final of the 2022 AFL season against the Melbourne Demons, when he marked the ball in the dying minutes of the game just inside the boundary line and converted the set shot to set up the Brisbane Lions for a miracle win against the reigning premiers.
In April 2022, Cameron was subjected to racial abuse. The incident was being investigated by AFL’s integrity unit. His remarkable achievements have earned him some luxurious lifestyles and some fancy car trips. He is one of the richest and most influential professional rules football players in Australia. Charlie Cameron stands at an appealing height of 1.83m and has a good body weight which suits his personality.
