For Egypt

Walking into Scarab is like walking into another world because the atmosphere is really warm and relaxing and the music is great. You can buy anything from a stick of incense to a giant Buddha.

It seemed to the ancient Egyptians that the young scarab beetles emerged spontaneously from the burrow were they were born. Therefore they were worshipped as "Khepera", which means "he was came forth." This creative aspect of the scarab was associated with the creator god Atum.

Brisbane History - 1842, 24th March - Governor Gipps visited Brisbane, amended the town plans, and rejected the squatters request for Cleveland to be the port.
