In order to evaluate physically-based rainfall-runoff models for contour bays in the wheatbelt of southwestern Western Australia, a field experiment was carried out at Berkshire Valley in 1985-86. This paper describes the field experiment and shows examples of the types of data collected. The application of two rainfall-runoff models, ANSWERS and HILLS, is also described, and their applicability to simulating flow in contour bays is discussed.
