Sandra and Dennis Wood have lived in River Road at Sussex Inlet for more than 35 years.
There home fronts the waterway, virtually right in the middle as the water from St Georges Basin rushes by to the opening at the ocean.
And while this week's flooding is "bad" according to the couple it is nothing on 2015.
"We've seen a few floods over the years, this isn't too bad," Mrs Wood said.
"2015 was much worse. That was big.
"This isn't as high. Then it was all over the road and about five bricks up on my mother's house which is just down the road. It was up to my knees."
Talking ahead of Tuesday afternoon's expected high tide at 2pm, the couple say they have prepared their home as much as they can.
"We've prepared our house, we lifted everything up in the garage, the fridges, freezers and even the ride on," Mrs Wood said.
"We've just moved our caravan out of the garden."
Mr Wood said the 2015 flooding was much worse.
"Our place is 1200 off the ground," he said "it didn't come into the house. It was about 500 below the floorboards."
"That was devastating in the garage," Mrs Wood said.
"We lost a few fridges and freezers that time."
She said she hopes the damage would only be minor but the clean up afterwards was often worse.
"There is usually mud everywhere," she said.
"And stuff gets washed away.
"We have an onsite caravan at our place as well so everything in that will be wrecked.
"At my mum's we've taken all doors off downstairs and lifted everything up as much as we could."
The couple say the one saving graces is they haven't lost power like lots of other areas, including parts of Sussex Inlet have.
"We have no power in the garage, but the home's fine," Mrs Wood said.
"We are on a different grid down here compared to other parts of Sussex so thankfully we have maintained power."
