In January 1869 the hotel was a venue for wrestling:

The wrestling at the Lion hotel on Saturday was the greatest success that has been witnessed in Ballarat for many years. Some of the best light-weight men in the colony competed for the cup and other prizes. William Richards, the previous holder of the champion cup for ten months at the Scotchman's Arms hotel, has been declared the winner of the cup at the Golden Lion hotel, to be held for twelve months against all comers, weight not to exceed eleven stone. The following prizes were awarded:— Wm. Richards, first prize, cup and £4; second, A. Northy, £3; third, Stephen Eddy, £2; fourth, Thos. Charles, £1.[2]
