Abstract The Ngarradj catchment in the Northern Territory of Australia has high temporal resolution rainfall and run-off data from 1998 to 2002. These data have been used to calibrate the DistFW and HEC-HMS hydrology models. The ability of HEC-HMS to be calibrated using an extended hydrograph provided a better basis for long-term modelling. The calibrated HEC-HMS model was applied to 20 years of rainfall from within the region, providing a more reliable estimate of flood frequencies of higher magnitudes (> 1 in 5 year events). However, before undertaking this type of analysis, the modeller must have a good understanding of the catchment system and the limitations of the chosen hydrology model.
