Table 1 of the manual provides links to download the data in various formats.

This web page provides an interface for exploring the dataset by stream name.

Checking the 'Show catchment' option calculates and plots the catchment boundary of the selected stream, and provides an option to download the output as a GIS file.

Plotting streams and boundaries of large catchments (e.g. Yarra, Werribee) may take up to a minute, and will only display large tributaries. All stream lines are shown for smaller streams.

Clicking on a reach will show its details. Selecting 'Plot only upstream of clicked reach' allows calculation of catchment area for that reach.
