Actually, what you need is for Task 1 to know about Task 2.

You have something wrong in your assumptions, probably. There's no
general advertisement of available queues. However, if Task1 and Task2
were part of a Stream, they wouldn't need to know about each other,
Task 1 would simply forward the message along the stream and it would
get to Task 2.
