Are there any 'hand me down' groups around?

I moved to the Gold Coast and at our old home we had a fb 'hand me down' group basically if you had clothes your kids grew out of you would put it up on the group and then a mum would come and get it. Do you have one near you? Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy when I try to explain it around here... but op shops throw things out and things do go to waste there sometimes.... and it was great fun getting a big bag of clothes at once my daughter loved it. Have you had something similar? Do they exist anywhere else?

Yeah, we have a local Buy, Swap,Sell and there's also Freecycle.
