Emergency workers were called to the Buchan campground on Cave Rd in East Gippsland just after 5pm on Tuesday after it went underwater.
A number of cars were submerged in the area and police had to rescue multiple people from a nearby bridge.
As the flood water receded police conducted a search of the area, where they found the body of a woman, who has yet to be formally identified, in the search area about 6.45pm.
Police say they received information a day later that a man had been camping with the woman, and a search began Wednesday afternoon.
The man, who has also yet to be formally identified, was located dead in the area that had flooded.
Earlier on Tuesday, a man was killed when a branch fell on his property at Caringal.
“Emergency services provided medical assistance however the 44-year-old Bunyip man died at the scene,” Victoria Police said in a statement.
The state continued to be battered by thunderstorms and remained on flood watch on Boxing Day after a wet Christmas.
The State Emergency Service responded to more than 1000 assistance requests over three days.
Most of the calls came from Frankston, Shepparton, Bendigo and the state’s west.
But the focus was expected to shift to the east, with a number of flood warnings issued, SES state agency commander Alistair Drayton said.
Downed trees, particularly across roads, as well as water entering houses, made up a large number of the calls.
