After graduating from the Under 19s Gallus was first on the Melbourne list in 1964 - wearing number 42 in Reserves games - and appeared again in number 50 the next season but couldn't break into the senior team and left to play for VFA side Waverley in 1966.

In 1967 he moved to Wangaratta, then played for Bairnsdale in 1969 and Maffa in 1970. He won two Latrobe Valley Best and Fairest awards in a row before finally returning to the VFL and debuting for Melbourne in the first round of 1971.

He kicked three goals on debut, and 31 in 20 games across his first season but only played eight games in 1972 for eight goals. Gallus' career high of four goals came in Round 7, 1971 against North Melbourne.

In 1973 Tasmanian club Sandy Bay paid a $1000 transfer fee to secure him. The next year he moved to Warragul and later played for Drouin again.
