Catchment management is a complex task that, over the past decade, has become increasingly important to the community. This is particularly the case for urban environments. Of the many catchment management issues, estimation of the magnitude and likelihood of flood events is one that remains an issue. Data is an essential component of any approach for estimation of the magnitude and likelihood of design flood characteristics. This data can be obtained from 

both catchment monitoring and catchment modelling with these data sources being complementary rather than 

competitive. To obtain an understanding of the reliability of the predicted design characteristics, it is necessary to have an understanding of the data characteristics used in preparation of the prediction and the methodology used for development of the prediction. Presented will be a discussion of the data and its analysis for design flood estimation in an urban catchment in Sydney, Australia.
