In late August I placed a series of nine geocaches along the Old Mail Route between Paringa (in SA) and Lake Cullulleraine (in Vic). The cache description states the caches are dry weather only caches. Unfortunately, there have been a number of instances already where geocachers have become stuck whilst completing the series.
