To the best of my knowledge they wore a plain QV crown collar badge and a plain button with only a circle in the centre. They also had a "Australian Natives Association" company with a kind of coat-of-arms badge.

Try http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/other/sa_gazette/

keywords Defences Act 1895. I couldn't find it on a quick look now but have seen it previously.

Gives description of uniform. etc, don't recall that it goes into great detail on badges.
