The U.S. is first to have nuclear weapons, having nukes since 1945. The Soviet Union followed the U.S. by developing and testing their first nuke in 1949. Both nation started making hydrogen bombs (nukes using nuclear fission to explode) starting in the mid-1950s.

However Australia has had nuclear weapons tested within its borders.Australia does not have any nuclear weapons although there were several British tests at Maralinga, Emu field and Montebello Island in the 1950s. Australia has only 1 nuclear reactor at Lucas Heights near Sydney mainly for the production of useful isotopes.

What caused the arms race after World War 2?

Project 'Manhattan' or to simply say, Nuclear Bombs and the US "Red Scare" in the early 1950s. from then on every country wanted nuclear weapons, And the First to acquire was the US, then Russia, then the United Kingdom, then France, then China, then India, then Pakistan, then North Korea. It is believed that Israel also has them, but they refuse to either confirm or deny. At the peak of the cold war arms race both the US and Russia had more than 10,000 strategic nuclear weapons and roughly 50,000 tactical nuclear weapons each, no other country in the world has ever had more than a few hundred total strategic and tactical nuclear weapons. As of 2014 both the US and Russia have reduced their stockpiles to about 3000 strategic nuclear weapons and zero tactical nuclear weapons (however the US maintains the parts from the dismantled 7000 strategic nuclear weapons and in an emergency could still reassemble them in a few months time into usable weapons, Russia likely has similar ability).

Any country that decides to can. All they need is about four years to build the nuclear materials processing infrastructure and a few competent Physics Grad students to do the design and they can have fission bombs. Fusion bombs are somewhat more difficult, but modern PCs and freeware hydrodynamics/etc. software are far more capable then the computers of the 1950s when such devices were first built.
