Staff at the Bungalow Hotel in Cairns had been receiving phone calls from their security firm, warning of a potential break in at their liquor store.

Hotel director Stewart Gibson said he went down to the pub after midnight to see what was going on and thought the alarm system was faulty.

"To my amazement (there was) nothing ... lights were off, no fans moving, I couldn't pinpoint it. It happened again Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night," he said.

After combing through CCTV, he realised the culprit was in fact a sneaky northern quoll.

The endangered animal was caught on camera, creeping between shelves of stock.

"It was just having a sniff around ... to see if there was any leftover gravy and chips," he said.

Mr Gibson said he was surprised to see the quoll so close to the city.

"I think he's living in the ceiling at the moment. Hopefully soon we can get him down, humanely, remove him and put him back out to his own habitat," he said.
