The advantage of the Vicmap address data is that it's the entrance to 
the property for the address. Mostly, there are some that are center of 
the property where the entrance is not known.

This is the preferred data for addresses.

Cadastral data usually shows the boundary of the property but gives no 
clue to the entrance for the address.

If SA published a georeferenced entrance node address data licenced 
appropriately it would give the address data but it also lets you 
determine the street names.
