The Taman Kulimambang butterflies are all aflutter in their new home and mingling with people. The new butterfly park is located in the Tasek Merimbun Heritage Site in the district of Tutong. It was opened on the 7th July 2012 by the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports with a symbolic release of a batch of butterflies into the butterfly enclosure.

The enclosure is 14 by 14 metres and 8 metres high. It holds 40 species of butterflies and 50 species of flora, the latter carefully chosen to cater to the butterflies' diet. It seems different butterfly species feed on different types of plants.

Tasek Merimbun is an hour’s drive from Bandar Seri Begawan. The park is open from Sunday to Thursday from 9am to 5pm, Friday from 9am to 11.30am then 2pm to 5pm, and Saturday from 9.30am to 5pm. Admission is free.
