BAIL has been granted for a 34-year-old Hervey Bay man accused of stabbing his younger brother in the neck with an ornamental sword on New Year's Day.

Matthew Norris Waterton appeared in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Wednesday afternoon.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell said in any other circumstances he would have refused bail but because the incident was the result of a family feud, he allowed bail with strict conditions.

The restrictions included not consuming alcohol, not contacting the victim and twice weekly reporting to police.

Waterton was charged with unlawfully wounding his 30-year-old brother Dudley Matthew Waterton who is in a serious but stable condition in Hervey Bay Hospital.
