Began his career in the South Australian amateur competition and represented the Australian Amateurs at the 1988 Bicentennial Carnival. Drafted in 1987 he didn't travel to Victoria until 1990, but was a quality contributor in the midfield once he finally got going.

Lucky to avoid lengthy injury, Obst was troubled by minor injuries. Nevertheless he played 22 of 24 games in his first year and never less than 15 for a season.

In 1996 he finished third in the Best and Fairest, but after an ordinary 1997 season it became clear that it would be Obst's last year, and he was stranded on 149 career games after being suspended for two weeks for striking Peter Sumich in Round 20, 1997.

Retired from AFL football after the 1997 season and returned to Port Adelaide in the SANFL where he won another premiership in 1999 before retiring.

In 1990 Obst was sued by ex-South Adelaide player Brenton Honor who made a $100,000 claim regarding an alleged strike in a reserves match the year before.
