Now is where Bland Shire—Bland to its friends—comes into the picture, as this spot does its thing over in Australia. Bland didn’t want to mess with the special relationship between Dull and Boring, but town officials did vote in favor of joining something called the League of Extraordinary Communities.
We’re fans of this creative little bit of community marketing, and if we ever find ourselves in the area—we probably couldn’t resist making a little bit of a stop to check things out.
We’ll just have to make sure we don’t miss the towns, as Bland Shire has a population of just 6,000 people and Boring has a population of around 8,000. Dull—understandably given its name—is the smallest of the three spots, as it’s only home to 80 citizens. Obviously, that’s before the influx of tourists.
