Party place like any other
For me Cairns was a party place like any other in Europe or the rest of the world. The main thing there are the bars, clubs and restaurants. Other than that there is really not much to see in the city which makes it boring pretty soon. You have to do trips there to make it worth. So go to Cape Tribulation and a Great Barrier Reef trip or flight! No beach or surfing.. so just the lagoon.
