The references you're probably referring to are:

Young, R. W., and Bryant, E. A., 1992, Catastrophic wave erosion on the
southeastern coast of Australia: Impact of the Lanai tsunamis ca. 105
ka?: Geology, v. 20, no. 3, p. 199-202.

Jones, A. T., 1992, Discussion [of above]: Geology, v. 20, no. 12, p. 

Young, R. W., and Bryant, E. A., 1992, Reply [to discussion]: Geology,
v. 20, no. 12, p. 1151.

The tsunamis were apparently the result of gigantic submarine landslides
near the islands of Hawaii and Lanai.

By the way, if questions ever come up dealing with anything GSA has
published, don't hesitate to ask me to look it up for you. A lot of
this material is in my office, and the rest is just down the hall.
Hope this helps.
