The territorial landscape reveals particular places in the Burgiyana and Guuranda landscape where cross-cultural engagement was prevalent, as well as places that reinforced the bounded setting of the mission. Lester-Irabinna Rigney highlights that the visitors drew on Aboriginal knowledge of the maritime landscape for navigation, which is often dismissed in the history of Kangaroo Island. The Burgiyana maritime landscape reveals the changing cultural structures and technologies brought about by the contact and post-contact periods. Missionaries aimed to create boundaries where they do not exist in nature through the spatial layout of mission settlements, by imposing new forms of settlement organisation and space and time routines. The maritime landscape of Burgiyana allowed for many opportunities for waterborne transport and travel, crossing borders created by authorities. Since contact, settlers have used Indigenous knowledge of the coast for navigation; knowledge which non-Indigenous fishermen continue to use.
