Southern Ocean Lodge
Southern Ocean Lodge Executive Chef Jack Ingram brings a passion for fresh seasonal produce as well as a drive to work with local producers to the daily-changing menu, an approach that is essential to the Baillie Lodges dining experience.
A life-changing trip to Australia in 2009 saw Jack secure his first position at Southern Ocean Lodge where he fell in love with the wonderful range of South Australian produce and in particular the ingredients sourced from the small scale producers on Kangaroo Island. Jack relished learning to use the whole – or as much as possible – of each ingredient, a ‘nose to tail’ approach that aligned with the island producers’ sustainable philosophy and respect for the natural environment.
Time in Melbourne followed where Jack worked with some of Australia’s leading chefs and restaurateurs. When the opportunity presented for him to return to Southern Ocean Lodge as Executive Chef he considered it perfect timing to combine his knowledge and experience with the ever-evolving range of premium produce on offer on Kangaroo Island.
As Executive Chef, Jack is also the custodian of the Baillie Lodges’ Culinary Philosophy developed by founding Executive Chef Tim Bourke and owner James Baillie, designed to offer guests a dining experience that delivers an essential ‘taste’ of Kangaroo Island.

Peter Hughes from the Telegraph UK writes:
“Southern Ocean was one of the earliest of Australia’s luxury wilderness lodges. The fact that it brought high style to Kangaroo Island with the rest of the continent at its disposal says much about the singularity of the place.”
