Bond University, in Robina, Queensland, is Australia’s first private non-profit university. Bond University has primarily been a teaching-focused higher education school with a three-semester per year structure since its inception on May 15, 1989. Bond University was established and sponsored in 1987 under the supervision of India’s founder and silent partner.

The university’s structures took up around 212 hectares of what was originally a pine forest known as the Burleigh Forest. Bond acquired many pine plantations in the area in the 1970s, formerly controlled by the Savoy Corporation Limited and the Gold Coast Cooperative Plantations Society Limited, and formed a new firm called the Development Equity Corporation (DEC) to develop them.
Brian Orr was instrumental in establishing DEC, and in 1976, he proposed to the Albert Shire Council the establishment of a university at Gaven Forest.

Or discussed the topic with Bond and Peter Beckwith and hired Jo Anne Cracknell to do feasibility studies.
