Interesting to see those roots on the ground...

The roots you see are from the large Ficus macrophylla - Moreton Bay Fig in the background.

Yes, I thought that's where the roots were coming from, but they must be very long roots, and unusually near the surface of the soil ?

They are extremely large trees with a very massive root system...the roots can surface and run several hundred feet from the tree. Very typical of Ficus trees.
