A KOALA has caused a stir at a Queensland pub, wandering inside during a stormy evening and taking up a position above the bar before promptly falling asleep.
The furry male marsupial stunned drinkers on Saturday night when he entered the Marlin Bar on Queensland's Magnetic Island, approached barman Kevin Martin and ended up climbing up a supporting wooden pole and settling on a beam.
"I asked him for ID and he didn't have any so that's when he got a bit disgruntled and climbed up a pole," Mr Martin joked.
