Small-scale, everyday activities relating to subsistence and sustenance as well as employment and economy characterise the economic landscape. Marine resources are essential for foraging societies, as well as being a reserve for agricultural communities. Most people bought their boats and got the majority of their income from fishing, supplemented with casual work at Burgiyana. The mission work on Waraldi was further supplemented with fishing. A maritime landscape includes the partner economy of any maritime culture: coastal agriculture. The Old Village and surrounding areas of activity on Waraldi reveal a range of structures relating to pastoral activities. The economic landscape highlights equality between the importance of both marine resources and island and coastal agriculture. At Burgiyana, fishing and agriculture provided everyday subsistence and sustenance, as well as employment and livelihood. Island pastoralism occupied many Narungga peoples, besides the construction of tanks and other labour, with some people living on Waraldi on a permanent basis.
