Emu invasion: The pesky pair making themselves home at a Queensland pub

Article image for Emu invasion: The pesky pair making themselves home at a Queensland pub

It doesn’t get much more Australian than this.

Two troublemakers have been making a spectacle of themselves and delighting patrons at a pub in outback Queensland.

A pair of cheeky emus have been making themselves at home at the Yaraka Hotel.

Owner Chris Gimblett told Deborah Knight they’ve been around a long time, but they’d recently learned a new skill.

“Oh Deb, they have been a problem,” he joked.

“They just learnt to walk up the stairs … outside the hotel.

“And they’ve been marching in and causing a little bit of consternation with patrons and us alike.”

Mr Gimblett said they’d put up a sign and a barrier, which so far has worked.

“They haven’t figured out how to get past that barrier,” he said.

“We’ll see how we go!”
