The outer resource landscape extends away from the boundary of the maritime landscape under study and particularly extends inland, away from the coast. Aboriginal people often participated in the local economy of purchasing and selling boats and other maritime equipment such as sails and nets, ensuring a healthy industry for equipment manufacturers, distribution agencies and markets. Aside from purchasing boats, Aboriginal people also requested government help to buy a range of maritime equipment including chain, anchors, oars, nets and sails. Mission boats were generally for the daily work of the mission, yet boats were also provided for fishing. The Burgiyana community’s transport and communication landscapes feature sea routes and landing sites. Communication affects the maritime sphere to a greater degree than inland places and the sea is both a ‘roadless country’ and ‘amphibious landscape’. The transport landscape of Burgiyana emphasises Narungga’s incorporation into capitalist systems following colonisation, in particular requiring permissions to buy boats and other marine equipment for fishing.
