A motorist and his mate had an incredible escape after a tree toppled outside a Queensland pub, narrowly missing their car.

The amazing incident took place outside Hogan's pub at Wellington Point, in Brisbane's east, during strong winds and heavy rain caused by ex-tropical cyclone Oswald.

Footage from a security camera outside the pub shows the large leopard tree swaying ominously as the motorist and his pal walk to their car.

They pull out of their parking space just as the tree crashes behind their silver sedan.

The footage was posted on YouTube.



One person, claiming to be the driver's wife, suggested the tree scratched to the rear windscreen wiper.

"That was my husband and his best friend - the only damage was a slight scratch on the rear windscreen wiper! They are lucky boys!"

Another user added: "So glad/lucky that no body got hurt! ... Tell those two boys to buy a lotto ticket :)".

Several people can be seen on the footage walking in and out of the pub just before the tree falls. They too can consider themselves very lucky.

The death toll from the floods and wind stood at six on Thursday.
