Dowe National Park is one of the parks established under the Brigalow and Nandewar Community Conservation Area Act 2005 and as such forms part of a chain of parks stretching the length of the Brigalow Belt South and Nandewar bioregions. It forms an important remnant of native vegetation in a highly cleared and fragmented landscape.

The park lies in the Tamworth Regional Local Government Area and the Gunnedah Local Government Area. It is located in the area of the Tamworth Local Aboriginal Land Council and is within the traditional lands of the Gamilaroi.
