While heavy rainfall and strong winds battered the region over the weekend, call-outs for State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers remained relatively quiet.
For SES Argyle cluster commander Rob Bell the past few days had been quiet compared to similar times in the past.
He said SES volunteers in the Goulburn region had attended multiple calls about trees down on roads and attended a job on Bungonia Road where a tree had fallen on a house.
By Monday, volunteers were busy monitoring flood levels and keeping the community up to date.
On Friday afternoon, November 12, crews were called to rescue a man stuck in floodwaters near Tarago.
Mr Bell said the man had driven into a flooded road crossing.
"He managed to get himself out before we arrived, and even managed to get the vehicle out," Mr Bell said.
The commander urged the community not to drive through floodwaters.
"It only takes 30cm of floodwater to wash a car away," he said.
"It's relentless, a flood is not like a fire where you can put it out, it just keeps coming."
He reported Goulburn had received 83mms of rain over the past week, with floods starting to ease.
Towrang Bridge has remained closed for more than 36 hours and is set to reopen Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning.
However, Mr Bell said strong winds were expected to continue for another 24 hours.
He reminded residents to secure loose items, furniture and trampolines from around the house, and to stay away from fallen power lines.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology the rain is set to ease over the next few days.
For Goulburn winds of 15kmh to 25kmh are predicted for Tuesday, November 16, with a five per cent chance of rain and a maximum temperature of 15 degrees Celsius.
Wednesday is set to be slightly warmer with a maximum temperature of 19 degrees Celsius and light winds.
Later in the week, Thursday is looking to be a sunny top of 23 degrees with winds northwest to northeasterly 15 to 20 kmh tending west to northwesterly 20 to 30 kmh.
