It really depends on what kind of website you have, if it's just a personal website, then i don't think spending extra money would be worth it.
Now, if you are running a website with an income potential and you think that paying the extra cost for purchasing additional domain names will not greatly affect your pocket; instead it will give you more benefits, then I think it's a good move. By securing the other URL extensions available can give you the peace of mind that nobody can try to copy your website and pose as if they are the legitimate site. Think of it like an insurance policy. Another advantage is that it will be easier for the Users to go to your website even if they forgot if it's .com, .net, .au, etc. Because whatever extension they use, it will still be routed to your website. I'm not saying that you need to buy all the available URL extensions, just use the common ones like .net, .org, .us(if your from the United States) or your countries' designated URL extension.
Just really make sure that it's routed to the correct website so that you won't have any traffic issues in the future.
