Cloud Logging can be turned on using a flag with either gcloud create or update:

gcloud tasks queues create QUEUE_ID --log-sampling-ratio=1.0

or

gcloud tasks queues update QUEUE_ID --log-sampling-ratio=1.0

where the log-sampling-ratio value indicates what percentage of the operations on the queue are logged. Setting it to any value between 1.0 and 0.0 logs that fraction of operations, where 1.0 logs all the operations and 0.0 logs none of them. 0.0 is the default setting.
