In 2008 Isaka Cernak joined A-League team Brisbane Roar (then called Queensland Roar), making 15 appearances and scoring a goal in his two seasons with the club. On 24 January 2009, Cernak made his senior debut as a substitute for Brisbane Roar against Perth Glory in a 4-2 win. In 2010, he left the Roar to join state rivals the North Queensland Fury.

He made 14 appearances for the Fury, scoring one goal in his season with the Fury. Unfortunately for Cernak, the Fury were unable to extend his contract due to FFA ownership of the club.

During the 2010-11 season Melbourne Victory signed Cernak for the following season and Asian Champions League campaign as a replacement for departing striker Robbie Kruse to Bundesliga 2 club Fortuna Düsseldorf, with Fury unable to extend his contract due to FFA ownership of the club.

Just a few months after signing with Wellington Phoenix, Cernak signed with Perth Glory.

In February 2014 Isaka signed for reigning A-League champions Central Coast Mariners. Isaka stated upon signing: “Being able to have one-and-a-half years to learn as a footballer off ‘Mossy’ (Phil Moss) and the players at Central Coast Mariners is really exciting for me.”

He joined SuperSport United in June 2015.
