A man accused of stabbing his alleged victim during a late-night fight on the Far South Coast has been granted bail.

NSW Police said emergency services were called to a home on Beachview Close, North Narooma at about 12:40 am on Friday (20 May).

Officers were told there had allegedly been a fight between two men, 24-year-old Jamie Keegan and an older man, during a party at the home.

Paramedics treated the older man for stab wounds to his buttocks and upper leg before he was airlifted to Canberra Hospital in a stable condition.
