Station Managers – Paul & Kate Watts

Paul and Kate, along with their three daughters, commenced with Heytesbury in 2016 after several years in the Pilbara region.  Paul and Kate started out managing our Moolooloo Station, before a transfer to our Pigeon Hole Station in June 2020.

Both met and commenced their experience on northern stations in the East Kimberley region of WA and after a number of years working in other professions were drawn back into the pastoral industry to follow their passion.

“We wanted to join a Company that valued good quality, well handled cattle and offered a long term career in the pastoral industry”
