Private jet or helicopter?? Tardis?

Unfortunately Hamilton Island is a few hundred kilometres south of Port Douglas.

If you want to do a day trip to an Island, you could consider driving down to Cairns and then heading over to Green Island. http://www.greenislandresort.com.au/

The flight is from Cairns direct to Hamilton Island. However it is still a 2 hour flight and there is 1 flight a day in each direction.

Example: 7.25am departure from Cairns, into HI 8.30 am $225 per person

2.05pm departure from HI, into Cairns 7.05pm (via Brisbane with Virgin Blue). $229 per person

Otherwise the direct flight from HI to Cairns departs 8.55am daily.

If you had the time, then you could stay at Hamilton Island for a few nights to experience the island and surrounding area.

Or just stay in the Port Douglas area and do the day trip to Green Island as suggested by sydneystephen.
