Not necessarily.

You can do (as root) mv /root/mirror.pacific.net.au /home/youruser
then chown -r youruser:yourgroup /home/youruser/mirror.pacific.net.au
 
That will relocate the entire directory tree to your users home
directory and give permissions to the user so nothing else requires root
privileges (except installs of course).
