Quiney was first called up to the Victorian team in 2005, to play against the touring ICC World XI in a limited overs warm-up match for the ICC Super Series. He was run out for three. In the following season (2006–07), he became a regular member of Victoria's interstate limited overs side and made his first class debut, against Tasmania in Hobart.

During the 2007/08 season, Quiney began to hold down a regular position in all forms of the game at interstate level, playing some important innings for Victoria, especially in the Ford Ranger Cup where he scored 89 not out off 57 balls against New South Wales at the MCG followed by 78 runs off 95 balls and 65 off 76 against Tasmania in Hobart and Melbourne respectively. In a Sheffield Shield match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) against Tasmania in 2010–11, he scored a half century in the first innings and then 102 in the second innings. The century was his third in first class cricket, but was unable to save Victoria from their first defeat in a Sheffield Shield match at the MCG for three years. In February 2012, he scored two centuries (114 and 119) in the one Sheffield Shield match against South Australia at the Adelaide Oval.

After his 2011–12 season for Victoria and a strong innings of 85 for Australia A against the South African XI, Quiney was selected to make his Test debut in the first Test against South Africa in Brisbane in November 2012, after batsman Shane Watson withdrew due to injury. On debut he scored a paltry 9, facing the likes of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel. His poor performance following this with 2 ducks in consecutive innings at an average of 3.00 in the two tests saw him dropped to make way for Shane Watson now back from injury. Since Ponting's retirement, there have been calls for Quiney to replace Ponting in Australia XI.
