Can I visit Petra during my short trip to Israel?

Flying in from NYC: IB 3316 on Saturday at 9:50PM
Flying out to Brisbane, Australia: TK 865 on Wednesday 8:55AM

During my 3 full days in Israel, do you think it would be possible to visit Petra during one of those days - or am I being too ambitious here?

You are being too ambitious. The only possible option is the one day tours from Tel-Aviv that fly down to Eilat around 6 AM and return to Tel-Aviv after 10 PM - a long, exhausting and expensive day and you will only spend a few hours at Petra.

Is this your first trip to Israel ? If yes, base yourself in Jerusalem for the entire three days: one day in the Old City (it's a good idea to hire a guide if your budget allows it), one day in the New City (Israel Museum, Yad Vashem, etc) and one day take a bus tour either to the Dead Sea or the Galilee.
