Do I need to book for all the events at the Newton Building?

No. Once you have a pass, you can go to any event within that time frame. A weekend pass allows you to see any event throughout the weekend. A day pass gives you access to all events on that day. A half-day pass allows you into the Keynote talk plus the events within the particular morning or afternoon.
