McLachlan began working in sports management in 1998, where he worked with Elite Sports Properties (ESP). As general manager of the Events and Entertainment Division, he was involved in a number of different sporting events, including the 2000 Summer Olympics, the 2002 Winter Olympics, the 2002 FIFA World Cup, and the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
In 2004, McLachlan became a director of the AFL Hall of Fame and Sensation exhibition in Melbourne which was placed into administration two months after opening due to severe debt. He had previously co-founded Spyglass Management, which was awarded the licence to operate the Hall of Fame. In November 2004, the Federal Court of Australia described Spyglass Management as "hopelessly insolvent", with "many creditors, whose debts in aggregate exceed $26 million".
In 2008, McLachlan became co-host of AFL Game Day, a television show on the Seven Network. He also took up a role as a match-day commentator, calling Saturday-night and Sunday-afternoon matches for Melbourne-based radio station Triple M. The same year, he called the Spring Racing Carnival for Triple M.
Outside of Australian rules football and horse racing, McLachlan is involved in calling polo matches. He also owns Ten Goals, a small media and production described as specialising in "sports broadcasting, commentary, hosting and multimedia presentations".
In 2016, McLachlan created controversy and received criticism following an on-air incident when he was pushed away by fill-in weather presenter and Miss Universe Australia, Monika Radulovic, as a result of him flirting and embracing with her during a live cross to the Magic Millions horse racing event. He later apologised to Radulovic and viewers on air.
Hamish hosted the prime-time Rio Olympics coverage on the Seven Network in 2016. He also writes for the Herald Sun newspaper in Melbourne.
McLachlan is originally from Adelaide, South Australia, and attended St Peter's College and the University of Adelaide, where he graduated with a degree in commerce. His older brother Gillon McLachlan is Chief Executive Officer of the AFL.
